CASARC is one of the founding members of the Children’s Advocacy Center of San Francisco (CAC). The CAC is a collaboration of Safe & Sound, the City and County of San Francisco and UCSF. It provides support for victims of child abuse and their families. It ensures children have the help and guidance they need to heal from the trauma they experienced, and that families receive the services they need to create a safe future without abuse. The CAC is for victims of physical, sexual, emotional abuse, and neglect.

Child abuse is any act or failure to act that endangers a child’s physical or emotional health and development. Child abuse often takes place within the home or involves a person the child knows quite well, such as a relative, babysitter, friend or acquaintance.
