Between 2016 and 2017, the Institute for Child Success conducted a landscape study and analysis of member centers of the South Carolina Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers (SCNCAC) on their organizational capacity, needs and outcomes. This study was designed to assess the current status, services and outcomes of South Carolina Child Advocacy Centers and yield valuable information that could inform any future quality improvement, strategic planning, and advocacy eﬀorts from the state network and the individual CACs.
This study was conducted over the fall of 2016 and the early winter of 2017 through a survey and data collection process that included individual interviews with CAC staﬀ as well as with the National Children’s Alliance, the South Carolina Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers, and South Carolina governmental officials. This project was generously supported by a grant from the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation.
