Children's Advocacy Center
CDC data reports in 2021 more than 37% of high school students reported experiencing poor mental health during COVID-19.
Our CAC breakfast gathered professionals to discuss childhood trauma and our work to intervene so that these teens move forward to live fulfilling lives.
Each year we open the doors to our Children’s Advocacy Center and welcome our community partners, providers, law enforcement and legislators.
It takes all of us working together for our CAC to offer this comprehensive approach to serving child victims and their families.
This year, 24 Hour Power Inc.’s founder Susie Lordi, worked with SABURA students to create a canvas entitled “Be the Change”.
The painting was unveiled at our Children’s Advocacy Center’s Open house. The painting will be a traveling piece of art which will be displayed in various places throughout Plymouth County to inspire others to “Be the Change”.
Please paws to meet Opry!
This comfort canine will be used to promote wellness and healing in the Hingham community.
Opry will also console child victims of abuse at our Children’s Advocacy Center.
Thanks you HinghamPolice for training and sharing this special pup with us. 🐾

In 2017 we had 905 referrals of child abuse. We are now tackling the issue of human trafficking of children and a new protocol to respond.
Our staff works daily to help victims and their families find a path to safety.
