We restore lives.

The Logan CAC and the Mingo CAC along with our partners are the front-line responders in Logan and Mingo Counties in West Virginia to reports of child sexual abuse and children who have experienced violence. Since opening our doors, we have served more than 2,000 children.

The Logan and Mingo CAC’s coordinate the efforts of child protection staff, law enforcement professionals, family advocates, medical experts and mental health clinicians under one roof. Our staff:

  • facilitates our partners’ collaborative response
  • arranges families’ visits to the center, including provision of support services
  • conducts forensic interviews
  • provides family advocacy and crisis intervention services
  • provides mental health therapy
  • provides caregiver support specialist services
  • ensures appropriate medical treatment

All of our services are aimed at reducing trauma so that children and families may begin the healing process. The Logan & Mingo CAC services are free of charge to every client.

What Is a Child Advocacy Center?

Traditionally, children are moved from agency to agency and endure multiple interviews, which creates additional trauma. A child advocacy center (CAC) turns that model upside down by providing one safe, child-friendly facility where child protection, criminal justice, and child treatment professionals work together to investigate abuse, hold offenders accountable, and help children heal.

Why the CAC Model Works.

Our Logan and Mingo centers were  able to provide help to 223 children in 2019. Because our model makes children and families feel safer, we’re seeing more child victims of abuse walk through our doors each year.


Our Team Sets Us Apart.

Our staff of experienced professionals are dedicated to helping children heal from abuse in Logan and Mingo Counties. We are equally supported by our Board of Directors — volunteers who are committed to our mission and bring a variety of vital professional expertise and experience to the organization.

Added in 2016 The Mingo Kids New View Teen Advisory Group became a vital component of the Logan and Mingo CAC’s. They provide mentoring, tutoring, and awareness to the students in which they interact with daily.
