Safe Horizon offers immediate and long-term help for both child victims of abuse and adult survivors of child abuse.

How Safe Horizon Helps Child Victims of Abuse and Their Family Members

We help child victims of abuse primarily through our Child Advocacy Centers (CACs). Located in each of the five boroughs, these child-friendly facilities:

  • Provide comprehensive, coordinated and expert investigation and response to the most serious cases of child abuse.
  • Provide a specialized mental health intervention called the Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) for child victims and their caregivers.
  • Are staffed by a team of experts including child protective specialists, law enforcement, prosecutors, pediatric specialists in child abuse and Safe Horizon counselors.

Learn more about the CAC model here.
