In 2014, the MCCAC served 228 children.

One in every 10 children will be a victim of sexual abuse by their 18th birthday. Based on data from the CDC, a conservative estimate for the cost of maltreatment in West Virginia was over $775 Million in 2014.

The MCCAC exists to change those numbers and lead the fight against the cycle of child abuse through a stronger, more approachable model. And over the past year, we’ve made significant progress by providing [number] forensic interviews, [number] medical exams, and therapy to [number] children in our community.
