In Fiscal Year 2020-2021, The Logan County Child Advocacy Center, Inc. Served 187  new   Children

Committed to the Safety of Children

One in every 10 children will be a victim of sexual abuse by their 18th birthday. Based on data from the CDC, a conservative estimate for the cost of maltreatment in West Virginia was over $775 Million in 2014.

The Logan & Mingo County Child Advocacy Centers, Inc. exists 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 forensic interviews, medical exams, and therapy to over 300 children in our community.

FY 2020 by the Numbers

Who We Serve

  • 31% were male, 63% female
  • 72% weer age 12 and under
  • 75% of the referrals received alleged more than one form of abuse
  • 99% of victims knew their abuser. Abuse is a crime of secrecy.
  • 75% of cases reported were sexual abuse.
  • 46% of cases report alleged physical abuse
  • Drug endangerment, neglect, domestic violence, and emotional abuse were also included

How Many Served

  • In FY 2020, The Logan County Child Advocacy Center, Inc. provided services for 187 new children along with 45 children who continued services from the year before.

What We Provided

  • 158 forensic interviews.
  • 29 children were served by the two investigative teams without an interview
  • 51 children received therapy sessions.
  • 18 children received medical exams.

How This Benefits Our Community

  • The CAC model saved taxpayers in our community  $1,000 in investigative expenses this year per case.
  • If the CAC hadn’t intervened, the estimated lifetime costs of abuse for the children we served last year would have been over $400,000 per confirmed case.
