Because kids need someplace to go after an informed report of child abuse or maltreatment. They come to Sylvia's Child Advocacy Center. Sylvia Likens died in October 1965 from what one Sheriff called "Indiana's most terrible crime". Sylvia's CAC is dedicated to her memory and the cause of protecting children from abuse in every corner of our community.

Volunteer with Sylvia's Child Advocacy Center
Sylvia’s CAC is a secure facility and we work with incredibly sensitive matters. Our volunteer opportunities are limited to ways you can support kids and families indirectly. Thankfully, it only takes one word, one conversation, one moment to make a difference in the life of a child, even if it’s not directly with the child. It is through the support of people like you who volunteer, give, learn and speak out about issues of child abuse that makes Sylvia’s CAC possible.
