PUTTING CHILDREN FIRST

in responding to sexual abuse

The Delaware County Children’s Advocacy Center provides a victim-focused response to abuse so children and families are able to heal.

We coordinate investigations with law enforcement, child protection agencies, prosecutors, mental health and medical professionals, and victim advocates to work together when investigating allegations of child sexual abuse in Delaware County.

The Delaware County Children’s Advocacy Center is a program of Family Support Line, an organization dedicated to preventing and treating child sexual abuse in Delaware County for over 25 years.
