A healthy child and a healthy family are necessary for a healthy community.
Any miscommunication, or lack of follow-up, can short-circuit a case and put the child victim at greater risk of further abuse, or even death. The Case Tracking Program ensures that no child victim referred to the CACB gets lost in the complex system of investigating and assessing child abuse allegations.
Agency representatives review the same information to eliminate gaps in knowledge that could result in a child not receiving appropriate services or being re-victimized. Each case of severe abuse is tracked as part of the multi-disciplinary team protocol while the case is pending in the child protective and criminal justice systems. Agency representatives meet bi-weekly at the CACB and review all new cases referred to the Advocacy Center in the previous two weeks.
