In 2014-2015, the REACHH-CAC served 93 children.

One in every 10 children will be a victim of sexual abuse by their 18th birthday. Based on data from the CDC, a conservative estimate for the cost of maltreatment in West Virginia was over $775 Million in 2014.

The REACHH-CAC exists to change those numbers and lead the fight against the cycle of child abuse through a stronger, more approachable model. And over the past two years, we’ve made significant progress by providing 93 forensic interviews, 35 medical exams, and therapy to 125 children in our community.
