The mission of the Robertson County Child Advocacy Center is to provide a setting in which child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse investigations and related services can be provided in a central specialized facility. This will serve to improve efficiency and effectiveness of investigations, reduce trauma to child victims, and better coordinate services to victims and their families. The Child Advocacy Center facilitates an interagency multidisciplinary approach to address the needs of abused children in a facility which has been specially designed to create a sense of safety and security for children.
The Robertson County Child Advocacy Center was opened in 1992 at the direction of Burney Dent Morriss and JoAnn Gregory. At the time, it served as the fourth Child Advocacy Center to be opened in Tennessee. The center is located in the 19th Judicial District and serves children and families living in the rural communities within Robertson County.
