How does the CAC model work?

CACs work alongside law enforcement and other agencies to handle situations where a home may not be suitable for a child, or where a child has been abused. Where law enforcement may take immediate action, CACs help take more investigative action. Working with police or state child services agencies, CACs interview children, review cases, and present information to attorneys, courts, and child service advocates. Those partners can then take appropriate legal action. Look at this chart to see how cases flow into and out of a CAC.
