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.

Throughout the month of April, in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Mountain Child Advocacy Center invites everyone in our community to participate in our awareness campaign.   This campaign shines a light on an issue that’s lived too long in the dark:  child abuse. 

During April, everyone can help raise awareness of the ongoing issues of child abuse and neglect by participating in a number of community outreach events. In addition, each person can make a difference through their visual commitment to help end child abuse by wearing blue to work, purchasing pinwheels, and/or planting a blue pinwheel garden.  


The Mountain Child Advocacy Center recently earned its national accreditation.  Click below to learn more about it!



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.

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.
