Welcome to the Child Advocacy Center of the 15th Judicial District’s Website! We’re so glad you stopped by!

Our mission is to reduce the trauma of child abuse and facilitate the healing process. We have served nearly 1,000 families since opening in 2008! Many times, children have to tell their stories over and again to the people trying their best to protect them.  We offer children a safe, comfortable haven.  We offer a place where they can share their story once, and then move on toward healing, and move on to being a child again.

In our child-friendly environment, our multi-disciplinary team can meet and make decisions regarding the investigation & prosecution of each child’s individual case, as well as specific needs for the child.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, comprised of the collective efforts of many agencies in our area.  Who makes up these agencies? To name a few: Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, District Attorney General, Law Enforcement Officers, and Child Advocacy Center Personnel.

Since opening our doors to the children and families of the 15th Judicial District in February 2008, we have provided services to over 600 families.

Our Inter-Agency Approach

Our CAC has a multi-disciplinary approach to helping children. It takes more than one group of people in a community to help solve the problems of child abuse. It takes the whole community! Here is a list of the agencies who all work together to help the victims of child abuse in our communities:

  • Department of Children’s Services
  • District Attorney General
  • Lebanon Police Department
  • Mt. Juliet Police Department
  • Watertown Police Department
  • Wilson County Sheriff’s Department
  • Trousdale County Sheriff’s Department
