Choctaw Children's Advocacy Center

The mission of the CCAC is to provide interventions in a safe, neutral environment that extends hope and healing for abused children and their families. Services available at the CCAC are aimed to provide the child victims and their family with treatment, education, and support while effectively coordinating other community resources.

This support given to victims and their family begins the recovery process and also helps families move through the system that legally manages child abuse cases.

Protecting children from abuse is everyone's responsibility. Everyone working together, the police, social workers, doctors, therapists, prosecutors, and advocates, can provide a community based response to the problem of child abuse and help to build a safe community. If you suspect child abuse is occurring, please complete the following form and file a copy with the CCAC, Choctaw Police Department, and Children and Family Services:

Services include, but are not limited to:
:: Individual therapy services
:: Case management services for the child victim and family

:: Follow-up regarding court cases
