The Bluegrass State Embraces Collaborate
The Kentucky Association of Children’s Advocacy Centers (KACAC) supports 15 CACs across Kentucky, providing technical services to its members, advocating for the centers at a state and national level, evaluating and assessing their work, and building awareness about child abuse to help empower communities to fight against it. In 2017, KACAC member centers provided services to over 6,500 children and their families.
Now they’ll also be able to offer a customized Collaborate implementation to their member centers, which includes benefits like the ability to manage clinical and medical services alongside the usual case management functionality, and unified statewide reporting.
Read about why hundreds of CACs and thousands of MDT members serving tens of thousands of clients each year choose Collaborate for Networks.
Baltimore Is in the House
The Baltimore Child Abuse Center (BCAC) is set to go live with Collaborate later this year. This facility combines the efforts of the Baltimore City Police, Child Protective Services, Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office, and its own interview and treatment staff to ensure that child abuse victims and the families get the support they need.
“BCAC has long championed the need to be trauma informed and child focused in approach, but to also be able to provide the best and most innovative service possible through smart use of technology. BCAC has never been satisfied with 'good enough' and looks to seize upon opportunities to embrace new technologies and data analysis to be able to provide the best service possible for every child and every community.”

The Collaborate team was excited to join BCAC in Baltimore at the 5th annual Be a Hero Gala, which is the biggest annual fundraiser for the center. Hip-hop legend Biz Markie was there spinning records, and everyone did their best to emulate his signature dance.
Keeping D.C. Safe
Just south of Baltimore, in our nation’s capital, Safe Shores CAC helps children with a variety of family advocacy, forensic, and clinical services.
Utilizing dozens of staff members and several thousand services, Safe Shores serves over 1,000 children and their families in the District of Columbia each year. Collaborate will streamline Safe Shores’ active workflow so that their staff can spend more time doing what they do best: providing much-needed services to abused children and their families.
Safe Shores offers tours of their state-of-the-art facility every other Thursday morning, which they affectionately call Coffee for Kids. If you’re in the area, drop by to meet the team and learn how the organization serves children and families that are affected by abuse.
