One Team

CACGA: We Are One Team

The Children’s Advocacy Centers of Georgia had its origins in 1989, when five children’s advocacy centers were established. Initially called the Georgia Network for Children, CACGA was incorporated in March 1994.

Today, more than 25 years after the first CAC opened its doors in Georgia, CACGA is a statewide network of 44 children’s advocacy centers, serving more than 90 percent of the great state of Georgia. Our Children’s Advocacy Centers are big, small, rural, and urban.  We have the heart and dedication to see the great potential of all children. We honor the courage of the smallest among us, who have been harmed by sexual abuse, physical abuse and exploitation, and who gain strength through the services, expertise and support that all of our Children’s Advocacy Centers provide. CACGA is proud and honored to be One Team with them.

That is our approach at CACGA:  We Are One Team with our 44 member centers all across Georgia.  We are committed to and support our One Team of CACs in the critically important work they do for the children and families of communities all across Georgia.  We believe in:

  • Service
  • Community
  • Teamwork
  • Our multidisciplinary partnerships
  • Children and their futures
  • Justice
  • Healing

Please join us. Join our One Team, and support the Children’s Advocacy Center in your community. Check out our Georgia map of Children’s Advocacy Centers. Ask them what you can do for them and the children and families in your community. Thank you so much for your support.

Focusing On Our CACs

Brooke Woods, Executive Director of Stepping Stone Children’s Advocacy Center in Dublin

Five Questions for Brooke Woods

Brooke Woods is the Executive Director of Stepping Stone Children’s Advocacy Center in Dublin.

CACGA:  What is the Stepping Stone?
Brooke Woods:  Stepping Stone Child Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization located in Dublin, Georgia which serves victims of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, as well as those children who witness domestic violence. The mission of Stepping Stone is to lessen the trauma suffered by children who have been abused by providing evaluation in a safe, caring place and to encourage collaboration of services for the benefit of the child, family, and community. Stepping Stone currently serves the children and families of the Dublin Judicial Circuit by providing them with free prevention, intervention, and education related to child abuse.

CACGA: What would you like the community to know about the professionals who work there?
Brooke Woods:  Employees of Stepping Stone have a passion for the health and well-being of all children. You will often hear our staff and volunteers say, “All children matter.” Our vison is to one day live in a community where children flourish free from child abuse and neglect.
As the Executive Director and Forensic Interviewer at Stepping Stone, I have direct contact with all of the families that come to our center. It is my hope that each child and family member that leaves Stepping Stone will feel like they have an advocate who will walk with them through the traumatic experience of abuse. I earned my bachelor degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Science Education. Although I worked in the teaching field for many years, I felt a calling to get involved with child advocacy work after serving on a jury that convicted a serial child molester. At the center my responsibilities include: conducting forensic interviews, providing victim advocacy, testifying in court, writing grant proposals, providing community prevention and awareness, assisting during sexual assault exams, coordinating and facilitating the multi-disciplinary team, fund raising, and other random duties.
