  • Mission:
  • CARE House, Inc., Baldwin County Child Advocacy Center, provides resources and services to child victims of sexual abuse and severe physical abuse, their supportive family members, and the community through a multi-disciplinary team approach while empowering all toward child abuse prevention. CARE House is Baldwin County's resource and referral source on child abuse.

  • History:
  • In the past, abused children had to endure multiple interviews conducted in police stations, courthouses and school hallways. This was not conducive to the emotional well being of children. In 1985, the Department of Human Resources, Sheriff's Office, and District Attorney's Office formed a Multidisplinary Team to limit this traumatic process. It became evident that a central location was needed - one the would convey protection, comfort, dignity and care. CARE House opened its doors in 1989.
