20TH ANNIVERSARY MOVEMENT: I PROTECT CHILDREN

Children’s Advocacy Centers of Mississippi is celebrating 20 years of protecting and providing healing and prosecution services to abused and neglected children. Through the past two decades, we’ve accomplished more than we could ever have dreamed. CACM has implemented Multidisciplinary Teams, established 12 local Child Advocacy Centers across the state, opened the first Child Advocacy Training Institute in the state, and helped save 44,320 children.

To help us commemorate and celebrate this major achievement, we’ve created the “I Protect Children” movement. This year-long movement was established to help spread awareness of how to spot signs of child abuse and neglect, the responsibilities of reporting suspected abuse, and celebrate the achievements CACM has made in the past 20 years.

MANDATED REPORTER

There’s a misconception regarding child abuse and neglect, which is that it mainly occurs in lower-income areas and neighborhoods, but in reality, it could be happening in the house next door. Child abuse, neglect, and trafficking is a community issue, and although it’s a difficult subject to discuss, it’s mandatory in order to save the lives of children throughout the State of Mississippi.

In accordance with MS. Code 43-21-353, any individual with reasonable cause to suspect that a child is being neglected, abused or trafficked, is required by law to make a verbal report immediately by telephone or otherwise.

Call the MDCPS statewide intake line at 1.800.222.8000 to report all allegations of abuse, neglect, and exploitation anonymously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

BECOME A COMMUNITY PARTNER

Through our partnerships with local businesses and national organizations, Children’s Advocacy Centers of Mississippi can continue impacting the lives of children in need.
