The Child Protect Children's Advocacy Center offers a non-threatening environment where a multidisciplinary team works together to minimize any further trauma during the justice and restoration process. Having an office in Prattville helps lesson the impact on the children and families. Child Protect also offers counseling to help the child recover from the abuse.
