At CACCC, there is a room in the front of the building where fun reigns. The Activity Center is usually the first stop for children who are new to CACCC, and inside there are toys, games, movies, and caring adults that hang out with the kids. When children first get here, they may be scared and unsure of their future. In a lot of cases these children have been taught to fear the system put in place to protect them. The Activity Center is the perfect place for them to get comfortable. One of our staff, interns or volunteers greet children and immediately work to make sure their basic needs are met. Food and drinks are on hand in case children are hungry.

These children range in age from newborn to the age of 18 and often, are in crisis. We care for infants addicted to drugs, toddlers that have not been bathed in weeks, children that have not eaten all day, kids that have physical injuries, and children that have experienced sexual abuse. They all present to the Activity Center different - some are here for a forensic interview, some were picked up from school because it is not safe for them to go home, and some of them are waiting foster care placement. Regardless of the reason they are here, the Activity Center is a safe place for them to hang out until investigative or treatment decisions have been made. Just this past year, our staff and volunteers provided care to approximately 3,500 children in the Activity Center. For the kids we serve, the Activity Center is the gateway to a life free of child abuse.
