Working As a Community

GFNF4Kids | Children's Advocacy Center

The GFNF4Kids Children’s Advocacy Center serves St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Indian River counties ensuring access to safety, justice, and healing for every child impacted by abuse. As we continue to serve these children, the CAC continues to build a future where all children are free from abuse. Through collaborative partnerships and visionary, evidence-based prevention, awareness, and education strategies, we are working to stop child abuse before it happens.
