The Friends of the Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center (MCCAC) is a volunteer driven 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to raise funds to complete construction of the child friendly facility by continuing to develop community awareness and to support a coordinated response to child abuse. Formed in 2003 by a group of individuals in the Monmouth County community, the Friends sought to raise the funds needed to build a full service Child Advocacy Center in Monmouth County. The County donated land on Kozloski Road in Freehold, NJ and the project was begun. A Child Advocacy Center (CAC) offers an integrated, multidisciplinary, child-friendly approach to the investigation and treatment of sexual and physical abuse of children. Phase One of the Capital Campaign was completed in June 2009 and since then the MCCAC has served more than 400 cases of child abuse each year. The Friends is now embarking on a final effort to complete the project. $2.3 million is needed to expand the facility to include a full medical suite, therapy rooms and additional office space.
