Professionals at the Washtenaw Child Advocacy Center (WCAC) are available to provide a variety of services to the families of Washtenaw County. Although most referrals to the WCAC are made through Law Enforcement or Child Protective Services, residents are welcome to contact the WCAC staff if they have questions about child sexual abuse, how to access services, or about the normal judicial and child protection systems responses to child sexual abuse. Callers can remain anonymous.
If your family has been referred to the WCAC by Law Enforcement or Child Protective Services, a WCAC staff member will contact you to schedule an appointment and to answer any questions you may have. For information about the Forensic Interview process, please see A Caregivers Guide. Families that have been referred to the WCAC will also receive crisis counseling services which may include, prevention education services, short-term therapy and/or referrals for counseling and other community resources.
