Child Abuse Prevention Month has come and gone, but at the Children’s Advocacy Project, child abuse prevention is on the forefront of our minds no matter the month.
We are working year-round towards child abuse prevention, but when a child is devastated by abuse, we are here to provide comprehensive services to the child and their non-offending family members.
No matter the month, you can join us in continuing to work towards child abuse prevention and providing the services and support child victims of abuse need to heal.
What we do:
At the Children’s Advocacy Project, we provide support to victims of child abuse. We are a community-based, child-friendly, trauma-informed organization that coordinate a multidisciplinary response to child maltreatment allegations.
We work to offer the best practice model that brings together law enforcement, forensic interviewers, child protective services, prosecutors, family advocates and mental health professionals in once place.
We provide science-based mental healthcare to help heal kids from trauma and reclaim their futures.
Helping and healing child victims of abuse cannot be done alone, it takes a community of support so that the Children’s Advocacy Project can provide these services at no cost to children or their families.

- You can make a difference in the life of a child! Volunteering provides an opportunity to give time and energy to a worthwhile cause. Join us in making Natrona County a community that does not tolerate child abuse and readily helps those whose lives are changed because of it. Due to the sensitive nature and confidentiality related to these cases, we do not provide volunteer opportunities working directly with children. For more information, please call (307) 232-0160.
- Providing necessary supplies is one way many individuals choose to help support the mission of CAP. Here are some ideas: Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Individually Wrapped Child Snacks Like Granola Bars, Juice Boxes, Child Size Blankets / Pillows. CAP budgets for nearly $2,000 annually on these supplies. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
