The Child Advocacy Center works as a multidisciplinary team with the Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement, and the District Attorney’s Office to respond to child abuse cases, investigate the crime, aggressively prosecute offenders, help children heal, and help families rebuild their shattered lives. In the last 21 years, the Child Advocacy Center and the Child Protective Investigative Team have impacted the lives of 11% of the population of Rutherford and Cannon Counties by serving 38,478 people. Last year, the team that responds to child abuse saw a 16% increase in cases in Rutherford and Cannon Counties.

“Child abuse cases skyrocketed last year in Rutherford and Cannon Counties, while the funding to support services for child abuse victims has been shrinking as a result of the pandemic,” said Development Coordinator Katie Enzor. “Your votes in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program will help us meet the growing need for crisis intervention services for our community’s youngest and most vulnerable crime victims.”

State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. Entering its 10th year, State Farm Neighborhood Assist has helped hundreds of causes build stronger neighborhoods together. Join their efforts as they continue to support our neighborhoods.
