Children’s Home Child Advocacy Center

Black Hills, South Dakota

Children’s Home Child Advocacy Center (CHCAC), a program of Children’s Home Society, provides expert forensic interviews and medical examinations of children who are alleged victims of sexual and/or physical abuse.

The primary goal of the CHCAC is to reduce a child’s trauma by eliminating repeated interviews and medical examinations by multiple investigative parties. The center provides one coordinated interview and a physical exam, and provides superior evidence in child abuse investigations. The interview process may be observed on closed-circuit television by the referring social worker and law enforcement officer.

Open since November 1999, CHCAC was created by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals and agencies serving the Black Hills; including law enforcement, child protection services, the medical community, United States and States Attorneys, court services, social service agencies, and Children’s Home Society.
