Our Mission

 To identify and respond to child abuse and neglect in Buncombe County; by educating, advocating and empowering the public to protect children and reduce trauma through a coordinated community effort.

We have a full roster of events in April to help us celebrate kids and Child Abuse Prevention Month!


April 27 is our  annual Compassion for Children Breakfast. Click here to register. Sponsorship opportunities available!

MCAC is grateful to partner with the Family Justice Center of Buncombe County and all of its partnering agencies. Through these collaborations we are able to provide services for families who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assault at their downtown location while providing our full array of services at our main location in Mission Children's Hospital Reuter Outpatient Center.

Every child deserves the opportunity to grow into a healthy and happy adult. We partner with families to develop the tools to keep their children safe and resources to support their child's healing when prevention fails.

MCAC relies on the generous support of our community to provide the services and support to the vulnerable populations that we serve in a trauma informed and child friendly environment at no cost to the families.  

A collaborated community effort is the most effective in preventing abuse and supporting children and families when abuse occurs. Working together with our community partners to support and coordinate our efforts is critical to a safer community.
