In our efforts to support the important work of Children’s Advocacy Centers, we provide numerous training programs, strategic input, and outreach resources. We also offer technical assistance for operating centers, with site visits, protocol consultations, and operating manuals. This support proves enormously beneficial to Children’s Advocacy Centers across the state, by equipping these groups to better serve their local communities and the children who belong to them.
Advocating on Behalf of Idaho’s Children
The Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers (INCAC) serves as one of the premier child welfare organizations in the state. We strive to provide support to communities across Idaho, by fostering the growth and development of Children’s Advocacy Centers. We accomplish this mission by raising awareness for child abuse, serving as a liaison with state agencies, and soliciting funding for the continued longevity of these important centers.
INCAC helps raise awareness in our communities by providing community training on various topics related to child abuse. Education and awareness are key elements to preventing child abuse.
Establishing Children’s Advocacy Centers and the continued support of these vital establishments serves as the primary focus of the Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers. Children’s Advocacy Centers unite law enforcement professionals, medical workers, and social service providers who cater to the needs of local children. Each center offers a unique assortment of child-related services, including the following activities that form the core of the center’s approach:
