NH Child Advocacy Centers

Seeking justice for child victims of abuse while supporting children and their families on a sustainable path to heal, survive and thrive.

Behavioral Health Services

We provide on-site behavioral health services at Child Advocacy Centers (Belknap, Cheshire and Hillsborough Counties) after a forensic interview.  The program ensures trauma-informed providers who work with you and your child to assess the impact of any identified traumas your child has experienced. 


KNOW & TELL is a program of the Granite State Children’s Alliance dedicated to educating adults to KNOW the signs of child abuse and TELL responsible authorities when they suspect abuse.

What We Do and Why

Why: Our Motivation

Child Advocacy Center team members remain dedicated to the tireless fight to assure that children and their families have a victim- centered experience in a safe and responsive place to move beyond their trauma to Heal, Survive and Thrive.

How: What We Do

Child Advocacy Centers partner with multiple public, private, state, county and local organizations to provide a collaborative, coordinated systematic response to child abuse investigations and subsequent supports for child victims and their families. Our CACs are intentionally designed to be child/family friendly, trauma informed, victim centered, neutral settings for joint investigations and forensic interviews of child victims of crime involving sexual abuse, felony level physical abuse, and child witnesses to violence such as a homicide or a serious domestic assault.

Impact: Positive Outcomes for Kids

We seek justice for child victims while supporting children and their families on a sustainable path to healing.

How We’ve Been Able to Help

“Everyone was friendly and put us at ease. We were given many opportunities to ask questions and were treated with great respect.”
