  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Cavern City CAC is:
    • To provide child abuse prevention and awareness training to children within their reach;
    • To provide forensically sound child interviews to service agencies;
    • To provide SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) services;
    • To refer victims to appropriate follow-up services.
    All these services and any other are to be provided with the ultimate goal of protection and
    enhancement of the well-being of victims and children.

  • History:
  • For approximately twenty years the Kids Safehouse of Eddy County has served
    Carlsbad and the surrounding communities with child forensic interviews. The Kids Safehouse also provided other services such as Prevention Programs in the elementary schools and follow-up referral services to the victims. As the result of an unfortunate series of events, in January 2015 the Kids Safehouse of Eddy County ceased operations and began their shutdown process. This resulted in a huge hurdle for law enforcement and CYFD in their child abuse investigations, as well as the neglect of the other services which are now absent.
    Sheriff London approached United Way of Carlsbad and South Eddy County and sought out a solution to this void. Zelma Lopez who has a background in child forensic interviewing and child abuse prevention was recruited as the director of a new organization. On March 26, 2015 the Cavern
    City Child Advocacy Center board held its first formal meeting.
