DNLCC is a community- based, 501(c)(3) non-profit Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) that provides coordinated services for victimized children and their families. Since 1991, DNLCC has helped over 18,000 children and their families. At DNLCC, we know how important it is for at-risk children to be believed and protected. As adults, it is our responsibility to protect children from abuse and to take action if abuse has already occurred. Our trained staff will make sure the child receives the help that they need to stay safe and heal from the trauma of abuse. Children can’t protect themselves, so let DNLCC give them the help they need.
