In the midst of something that no child should ever experience in life, the Baldwin County Child Advocacy Center serves as a one-stop shop for sexually abused children who are in need of help. The staff at the Child Advocacy Center works tirelessly to provide a safe haven for these children who have been victimized. We are truly blessed to have them as a much-needed resource in Baldwin County!

The BCCAC is made up of selfless and dedicated workers who sacrifice their own personal time and a reduced salary because they care about the kids!
If not them then who deserves our support and funding?
Anything which is provided to BCCAC will certainly help these abused children deal with the terrible circumstances they have been subjected to and start to get their lives back on track.

An amazing organization that protects abused children. It gives these children a safe place to tell their story only once instead of having to relive it over and over to strangers. A truly wonderful group of individuals work here. Baldwin County is lucky to have such an organization.

As a volunteer I have seen the dedication of the staff as they work tirelessly to proved a safe, caring environment for the children and their families as they attempt to work through devastating times. A state officer shared with me that the employees at this facility are some of the best he has worked with.
