Provide a safe, family friendly place for kids to receive investigative services when there are allegations of child abuse or neglect.
Kidz Kottage CAC is a core part of the community emergency response to child abuse. We provide local forensic investigative services to child abuse first responders and assist victims with access to recovery services.
Kidz Kottage is a fully accredited Child Advocacy Center with the National Children's Alliance. This means that we have oversight to help us maintain national CAC standards as a child abuse response center who works closely with community agencies and recovery service providers.
MDT's are Multidisciplinary Teams made up of specially trained professionals that have care and concern for child abuse victims in our community.
The McCurtain County MDT is made up of local law enforcement, district attorney's office, OKDHS, medical, mental health, advocates, and Kidz Kottage CAC.
Investigative and advocacy services are provided free to child abuse victims and their non-offending family members.
