What is a Children’s Advocacy Center?

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Delaware provides an array of child-focused services in a safe, child-friendly setting in order to assist in the assessment of and referrals to needed resources and services, and the investigation of allegations of child abuse and neglect, while ensuring the children and their families receive immediate, effective and sensitive support.

These services include forensic interviews of children, assessment and referral for behavioral health and social services and medical evaluations. We also participate in child abuse awareness and prevention initiatives across the state.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Delaware provides support and resources statewide through Centers located in Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown.
