The Isabella County Child Advocacy Center (ICCAC) is committed to providing a safe and child friendly environment that supports families throughout the child abuse investigation process.
To create a community free of childhood sexual and physical abuse and neglect.
In 1980 a group of committed volunteers came together with the support of the Children's Trust Fund to establish the Child and Family Enrichment Center (CAFE). CAFE served as a resource for parents in the community offering workshops, brochures and promoting the ideals of the Children's Trust Fund. Over the years the agency grew and began offering steady parenting classes, an annual parenting conference, support groups, and a care seat safety program. In 2001, the Child Assessment Team was developed, laying the foundation for what the Isabella County Child Advocacy Center is today. A multidisciplinary team was formed along with a County protocol as the need for an advocacy center to provide child centered forensic interviews was identified. In 2009, CAFE became accredited by the National Children's Alliance. Multiple shifts in leadership and locations led to a name change in 2016 to highlight the primary service we provide to the Community as the Isabella County Child Advocacy Center.
