The Northeast Arkansas Children's Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization that serves child victims of abuse and their families by providing a haven for interviewing and examining the child. NEACAC is a safe place for kids who may have been physically, emotionally, or sexually abused to tell their story. By bringing together all the professionals, under one roof, we avoid re-traumatizing children who are already suffering from pain, fear, or confusion.

What We Do

The Northeast Arkansas Children's Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization that services children with allegations of abuse and neglect by providing a safe place for Forensic Interviews, Medical exams, and follow up services and referrals for the family.

How we are funded

Grants procured from federal funding, as well as, through our local community and the State of Arkansas allow us to serve those who are victims of sexual assault and physical abuse. We participate in annual fundraising events and accept donations from organizations and individuals in our community to ensure each child receives the help they need, free of charge.

Accessing Services

If you suspect that a child has been abused, contact the Child Abuse Hotline at (800) 482-5964. Once the report has been made, the child will be referred to our center. Here, we will be able to provide our services for the child victim and their family.
