The Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center is committed
to providing a safe environment for child victims of abuse.
The Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center (LCCAC) is where children are brought for a forensic interview when there has been an allegation of sexual abuse, physical abuse or a child has been a witness to a major crime. The LCCAC is a child-focused center that coordinates the investigation and prosecution of these cases.
