Wynona’s House 1st Child Advocacy Center National Summit on Child Abuse & Neglect
Over 6 million children are affected by child abuse and neglect in our country each year. Child abuse does not discriminate: It can affect any child in any community regardless of economic level, ethnicity, race or religious group.
Our vision for the summit is to create a national platform to raise awareness of the child abuse and neglect epidemic in our country where no victim is overlooked.
Our mission is to educate the national community on the multidisciplinary team approach and the innovative and effective best practices of Child Advocacy Centers that address the prevention, investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse and neglect.
DAY ONE: plenary sessions with prominent dignitaries, honorary special guests and industry experts!
DAY TWO: four breakout sessions comprised of five concurrent tracks - your choice of CAC Model Approach, Law, Medical, Mental Health and/or Special Topics!
