CAC Leadership Club

 
 

At the Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County, we believe that advocacy plays a fundamental role in promoting healthy development for children within our community. We believe that through our efforts we will reduce trauma to child victims of abuse. It is through our intervention, treatment, and prevention services that we believe we can make an impact within our community. The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County's Leaderhsip Club will serve as an extension of those services and efforts.
