The mission of the Knox County Child Advocacy Center is to coordinate a timely, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approache and response to child physical and sexual abuse. Our office receives referrals from law enforcement and child protective services when they believe a child has been the victim of abuse. Our office will then conduct an interview with the child to find out what happened, manage the child's case through the justice system, provide court advocacy, and provide specialized trauma counseling at no cost to the child and family.
