  • History:
  • The Central Nebraska Child Advocacy Center, hereinafter referred to as The Center, is a non-profit organization that was founded and incorporated in 2002 after a group of concerned citizens felt there was a need for a CAC in their area. The Center started conducted taped forensic interviews of child victims from its inception and worked on becoming formally accredited. The Center became an Accredited Member of the National Children's Alliance (NCA) in 2005. The Center first used contracted forensic interviewers and then later hired an on-staff interviewer. Multi-disciplanary Team/Case Review is also a large part of the requirements for accreditation through the NCA. This process is a safe-guard put into place to provide a team of professionals involved in child abuse investigations who take an in-depth look at child abuse intakes and investigations to review how the investigation went and what could be done better as a team next time to help the victim and their non-offending family members.
