The Lakes Area Child Advocacy Center, located in Branson West Missouri, assists in investigation of reports of alleged child abuse in Stone, Taney and surrounding counties.
The Lakes Area Child Advocacy Center is a not-for-profit organization providing a safe, child friendly setting for the investigation of child abuse in Stone, Taney, and surrounding counties. The allegations that bring children to our center include sexual and/or physical abuse, living in a drug endangered environment, neglect, exploitation through the internet or child pornography, and/or witnessing a serious crime.
As a child advocacy center, we provide children two critical services: Forensic Interviews and Medical Exams by trained professionals. Behind the scenes at our center, a multidisciplinary team of law enforcement, Children's Division, the juvenile office and medical professionals observe the interview, share information, discuss outcomes and determine a course of action that best serves the interest of the child.
