Leading the effort against child sexual abuse.
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Kent County has led the local effort to recognize, report and reduce child sexual abuse since 1993. Along the way, we’ve helped thousands of children and families achieve healing and justice with services being provided at no cost.
Hearing the Story.
We bring together under one roof all the resources a sexually abused child might need, so they don’t have to repeat their story to multiple people in multiple places. Learn more.

The Center offers a variety of support services to help children and their caregivers in their journey to recovery. Learn more.

We teach K-4 students age-appropriate tools to protect themselves from sexual abuse, and empower them to report current or past abuse. Learn more.
