As October comes to an end, we would like to thank all of SCCAC professionals for their never ending hard work and compassion. Patient-centered care is a practice that is very meaningful and valuable to us at the SCCAC. We strive to always put the needs of children and their families first in order to ensure they feel comfortable and safe. Throughout the interviews with team members, we have seen an abundance of true care provided to the families we serve. For example, the children and families have victims advocacy available 24/7 and medical exams are offered to all children at no cost. It is crucial that both the child and their caregivers feel supported throughout their healing process. We are here to ensure that every child and family in need of SCCAC services feels supported and safe to share their story.
To report a suspicion of child abuse or neglect, please call the Department of Children and Families 24 hour hotline at 1-800-842-2288.
