To Report a Case of Suspected Child Abuse call
We serve children ages 2 years old to 17 years old who have been sexually abused, severally physically abused, human trafficked, and children who have been exploited over the internet. The children we serve are also residents of either Ionia or Montcalm County.
The mission of the Ionia Montcalm Secure and Friendly Environment Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is to protect children by providing multi-disciplinary investigations, assessment, and treatment of child abuse in an environment that is child-sensitive, supportive, and safe.
