The Florida Network of Children's Advocacy Centers, FNCAC, is a membership organization dedicated to helping local communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient – and put the needs of child victims first. The FNCAC provides training, support, technical assistance and leadership on a statewide level to local children’s and child advocacy centers and communities throughout Florida responding to reports of child abuse and neglect.
A children’s advocacy center is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, child advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases.
The FNCAC strongly believes that the combined professional wisdom and skill of the multidisciplinary team approach results in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective child and family focused system response possible.
The Florida Network of Children's Advocacy Centers is an accredited chapter of the National Children's Alliance.
