The Baltimore Child Abuse Center opened its doors to children and families in crisis in 1987 in response to growing awareness that sexually abused children were not only suffering the lasting effects of abuse, but they were also being revictimized by the lengthy and often repetitive investigative process intended to help them. BCAC has since developed a coordinated response that has resulted in timely, child-sensitive investigations of child sexual abuse in Baltimore City. Year after year, BCAC helps approximately 1,000 children and their families by providing free services to ensure a healthy recovery. BCAC not only provides services for victims of child abuse, but has expanded to help children who have been sexually assaulted, victims of human trafficking, victims of internet exploitation, medical exams for children entering foster care, and witnesses to homicide. BCAC stands as a leader in training which prevents future trauma. Over the last five years, staff has instituted a number of training initiatives which have enlightened 7,000 youth-serving professionals in schools, summer camps, law enforcement, and other child advocacy centers. This work protects tens of thousands of children under the care of these professionals from future abuse.
