Bennington County Child Advocacy Center

You are not alone...


The Bennington County Child Advocacy Center is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Our services are provided to:

  • Child victims of sexual abuse and serious physical abuse

  • Child witnesses to violent crimes

  • Adult victims of sexual abuse

  • Non-offending family members and caregivers

  • The Bennington County community at large through prevention and education efforts.


At the Bennington County Child Advocacy Center, a child can tell their story one time to trauma-informed, trained professionals in an environment where they know they will be safe—eliminating the need for victims of abuse to be interviewed multiple times.

Our center provides a child-friendly space for:

  • Victim interviews

  • Mental health referrals

  • Supportive services

  • Non-offending family and caregiver education

  • Coordination of child abuse awareness

  • Coordination of abuse prevention education

  • Facilitation and coordinated multidisciplinary case review meetings


The Bennington County Child Advocacy Center enhances the ability of the agencies and professionals who respond to allegations of maltreatment, working together to reduce the trauma victims experience.

This is done through:

  • A joint investigation approach

  • Victims’ assistance for victims and non-offending family members/caregivers

  • Aid children to cope with trauma and work toward healing

  • Education and outreach


The Bennington County Child Advocacy Center is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of community members who are passionate about helping children who have experienced abuse.
