Nebraska Parole Supports the Nebraska Alliance of Child Advocacy Centers during National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 1983, April has been nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month.  In Nebraska, a network of child advocacy centers works together to provide victim services, distribute resources, advocate for legislation, and raise public awareness.  This network, known as the Nebraska Alliance of Child Advocacy Centers (CACs), provides statewide coverage and ensures that no child is too far away from supportive services.  Core services provided by the Nebraska Alliance are:

  • Maintaining Standards and Integrity of the Child Advocacy Center Movement
  • Growth and Development of New and Existing Centers
  • Support, Continuation of Existing CACs
  • Networking/Support/Mentoring
  • Community Awareness
  • Evaluation and Assessment
  • Funding/Resource Development
  • Legislative Representation and Advocacy at State level
  • Training for the CACs, Law Enforcement, Department of Health and Human Services, Attorneys, Schools, Medical, Mental Health, and other Community Professionals

For the last three years, the Nebraska Division of Parole Supervision has actively supported the mission of the Nebraska Alliance of Child Advocacy Centers through promoting community awareness and gathering donations.  This year the Lincoln and Grand Island Parole Offices partnered with US Probation and Pre-Trial Services to gather donated resources that were distributed to Child Advocacy Centers in support of their mission.  Parole also designated April 5th as Wear Blue Day to Support Child Abuse Prevention Day.
