2013 Looking Back / 2014 Looking Ahead
The year 2013 brought about many changes for the Children's Advocacy Center. In March, Cindy Vessell was named the Executive Director of the CAC and the Coordinator for the Mental Health Network. Cindy comes to the CAC with over 23 years experience. She has her Master's Degree and is a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Registered Play Therapist.
In July, we lost the lease for our CAC office in Sullivan. After being temporarily relocated to the DeSoto CAC office we were finally able to open our new office at 14 South Washington in Union, Missouri. This new office would not have been possible if not for the generosity of others. We are so grateful to these agencies.
November welcomed a new Forensic Interviewer to our Union office as well as a PRN Forensic Interviewer.
Looking ahead in 2014, we have some exciting things happening. In March, we will host our annual Sweetheart Dance in Washington, MO. April will bring our annual Farmington dance. Our annual golf tournament will be held in August. Information about these events can be found under the Upcoming Events heading in the right hand column of this page.
As always, we are honored to serve the 10 counties we serve. We know that it takes every person on our team and a strong community to prevent, treat, and educate about child sexual abuse. Please look around out website and contact us with any questions
