95% of victims know their abuser. 54% of those cases reported were sexual abuse. In 2019 the CAC's in WV saw 4,544 children. WV CAC's are seeing %58 more cases than five years ago. The CAC model saved tax payers approximately $3 million in expenses.

The Logan and Mingo Child Advocacy Centers exist to change those numbers and lead the fight against the cycle of child abuse through a stronger, more approachable model. And over the past year, we’ve made significant progress by providing  196 forensic interviews, 32 medical exams, and therapy to 46 children in our community.
