Governor Brownback announces grants for children’s advocacy centers in Kansas

Topeka- Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today announced nearly $1 million in grants for the 2014 Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) grant program, which are funded by state general funds.  Children’s Advocacy Centers are child-focused, community-oriented programs coordinating investigation and intervention services for abused children by bringing together professionals and agencies in a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary model.  These CAC grant awards provide funding to hire and train staff to provide sexual and physical abuse victims with child-sensitive forensic interviews; advocacy services for victims and non-offending caregivers; and coordinate multi-disciplinary case review teams and efforts across systems to enhance services.
