Child Advocacy Center South Central

Child Advocacy Center South Central

A ribbon cutting in September 2011 opened the doors to the Child Advocacy Center’s satellite center in West Plains, Missouri. The center, designed to serve Douglas, Howell, Oregon, Ozark, Texas, Wright and a portion of Shannon counties provides children, families and investigators a child advocacy center within convenient driving distance of their homes and offices. Until we opened the satellite, families were forced to drive up to 2.5 hours each way when a child needed the services of the Child Advocacy Center. Contrary to our mission, this was not a child-friendly experience. Parents were forced to take off a full day of work; children would miss an entire school-day and law enforcement officials were pulled from their communities for the better part of a day.

The CAC SC is located at 411 Garfield in the former Howell County Health Department building and has been busy since we opened its doors. The building’s central location, easy access, plentiful parking and convenient floor plan have made it an excellent choice for our satellite center. The center also has six, full-time employees – a Children’s Services Specialist, Child Advocate, Medical Provider, Therapy Counselor and two Forensic Interviewer.

We cannot thank the West Plains and surrounding communities enough for helping turn the dream of a south central satellite into reality. Establishing this center has been a true labor of love on behalf of the children of south central Missouri!
