Child Advocacy Center

The Shelby County District Attorney General's office is committed to protecting our children from violence, neglect and sexual abuse. We are proud to be partners with the Memphis Child Advocacy Center (CAC).
The CAC, opened in 1992, is a private, non-profit organization created as a cooperative effort among agencies in Shelby County. It involves the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement officers, prosecutors from the Shelby County District Attorney General’s office, mental health providers and other resources in a coordinated community response.
Memphis Child Advocacy Center was one of the first child advocacy centers in an association of almost 300 nationally to bring key child protection and investigative agencies under one roof.
The CAC is an accredited member of the National Children’s Alliance and is licensed by the State of Tennessee as a Child Abuse Prevention Agency. The CAC help set the standard nationwide among children’s advocacy centers.
