Our Services

A dedicated support system.

Sunlight CAC programs provide support and protection for the child and non-offending family members.

Our mission is to provide quality intervention, investigation, and prosecution of child abuse through a coordinated multidisciplinary system dedicated to breaking the cycle of child abuse.

“Sunlight is here to help keep children safe.”

Our Impact

Services we provide.

  • Audio and visually recorded interviews in a safe, child-friendly environment.
  • Crisis intervention and emotional support for the victim and their non-offending family members.
  • Referral and follow-up with appropriate services, such as mental health, medical and/or sexual assault exams and victim’s services.
  • Case review and follow-through by a dedicated multidisciplinary team.

Documentation

Child-friendly interviews.

We take special care to be sensitive every step along the way.

All interviews conducted at the CAC will be recorded (audio and video). We record interviews so that the need for multiple interviews is reduced, while still providing an accurate record of what the child has reported as evidence to the prosecution, should a case go to trial. This interview is conducted in a child-friendly, safe environment by a specially trained interviewer.

Accreditation

Sunlight Child Advocacy Center is accredited through the National Children’s Alliance. There are nearly 800 Child Advocacy Centers in the US, and 16 in Kansas. We are part of a network that includes the Kansas Chapter of CACs and the Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Centers.

Every little bit helps keep Sunlight going, helping children when they need it most.
