Our Funding, Grants, and Community Partnerships

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Portage County’s mission is to improve the community’s response to child abuse and neglect and lessen the negative impact. Fortunately, we are able to provide all FREE services due to the generosity of community partnerships, foundations, and grants.

With generous donations from the community and grant funding, the CAC was able to make important upgrades to expand our services. We are now proud to announce improved prevention programming, state-of-the-art forensic interview equipment, electronic records, and a new website.

Thank you again to our community and Portage County for your continued support at our fundraising events. The expanded resources would not be possible without your continued dedication. We hope to see you again at our training, awareness, and annual fundraising activities: Bowl Against Abuse, Pinwheels for Prevention, and at the Portage County Anti-Human Trafficking Coalition Meetings.

A Big Thank You To All CAC Supporters
