What We Do

At the Chadwick Center for Children & Families, we believe that every child and family has the right to be safe and supported after experiencing a scary or traumatic event in order to move towards healing.

The Chadwick Center is an accredited children’s advocacy center (CAC).  It is one of the largest hospital-based CACs and trauma treatment centers in the nation.  Our CAC provides family-focused and trauma-informed services to children and adolescents who may have experienced or witnessed maltreatment, abuse or violence.

Our multidisciplinary team (MDT), also known as the Child Protection Team (CPT), includes caring and trained professionals from law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical, family advocacy and other CAC staff and community partners.  We provide specialized services to help children and families heal from abuse and trauma by providing a coordinated, compassionate MDT response.  This ensures that children don’t have to share their stories multiple times.  Click on the Programs link above to get information about the services the Chadwick Center offers for children and their families in San Diego County who have experienced trauma or abuse.
