Children’s Advocacy Center of Eastern Arkansas (CACEA) is a program of Mid-South Health Systems (MSHS) to provide comprehensive services to children who are victims of severe child maltreatment, particularly sexual abuse. CACEA is housed at MSHS’ West Memphis clinic.


Mission Statement

The mission of CACEA is to reduce trauma associated with child abuse investigations by providing forensic interviews, advocacy and mental health services, referral for appropriate medical services and working collaboratively with multidisciplinary team members.



Child First Doctrine

The child is our first priority.
Not the needs of the family.
Not the child’s “story.”
Not the evidence.
Not the the needs of the courts.
Not the needs of the police, child protection, attorneys, etc.
The child is our first priority
