In 2020, the Just For Kids Child Advocacy Center Served 317 Children

Committed to the Safety of Children

One in every 10 children will be a victim of sexual abuse by their 18th birthday. Based on data from the CDC, a conservative estimate for the cost of maltreatment in West Virginia was over $775 Million in 2014.

The Just For Kids Child Advocacy Center exists to change those numbers and lead the fight against the cycle of child abuse through a stronger, more approachable model. And over the past year, we’ve made significant progress by providing forensic interviews, medical exams, and therapy to over 300 children in our community.

2020 by the Numbers

Who We Serve

  • 99% of victims knew their abuser. Abuse is a crime of secrecy.

What We Provided

  • 300 forensic interviews.
  • 45 children received therapy sessions.

What Caregivers Are Saying

  • Our caregivers agreed that their child/children felt safe at Just For Kids Child Advocacy Center.
  • If they knew anyone else with a situation like their family was facing, they would tell that person about Just For Kids.

How This Benefits Our Community

  • The CAC model saved taxpayers in our community $302,583.00 in investigative expenses.
  • If the CAC hadn’t intervened, the estimated lifetime costs of abuse for the children we served last year would have been over $21,421,224.00.
