The Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County is an inspiring example of a successful public/private partnership. Founded in 2004, the Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity which embraces a coordinated, comprehensive and systematic approach to deal with issues associated with child abuse.

The Center represents both a place and a process designed to provide child victims and their non-offending family members with resources and advocacy efforts.

The "place" is supported by local contributors and community members, the New Hampshire Office of the Attorney General, the County of Carroll and the NH Charitable Foundation.

The "process" utilizes a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team approach, known as the Carroll County Child Protection Team to support the investigation and prosecution of crimes against Carroll County's children.



‘Beards For Bucks’ for kids

Police Officers go razor-less for a reason during October fundraiser to benefit Child Advocacy Centers throughout New Hampshire.

Tuftonboro, NH - If you notice a new look on a familiar face in Tuftonboro this October, know it’s in support of the Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County.  The third annual ‘Beards for Bucks’ fundraiser is supported by 49 police departments, each raising critical funds for their local CAC. Tuftonboro Police Department is heading up the cause in Carroll County.

Participating officers from the TPD donate money for the right to wear facial hair throughout the month and encourage donations to www.BeardsForBucks.org as they raise awareness and educate the public about their critical role in the multidisciplinary team, led by their local Child Advocacy Center, to help child victims of abuse.

“These police officers are with us, side by side, day in and day out, to help provide justice and healing for child victims of abuse,” said Elizabeth Kelley, Executive Director of the Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County. “’Beards For Bucks’ is a way for us to educate the public about the daily contributions officers make to help child victims of crime and a fun way to help the Center raise critical funds necessary to serve the children of Carroll County.”

1K Endurance Race a Success

Wolfeboro, NH:  On Saturday June 24th a crowd of supporters in Wolfeboro rallied around a great cause during the Dow Realty Group’s 1K Endurance Event.  The event was a fun run for adults starting at Keller Williams Lakes and Mountains and culminating at Wolfeboro’s two local breweries, Beveridge Craft Beer and Lone Wolfe Brewing Company. The event brought in over $8,500.00 for the Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County (CAC) through participation fees and event sponsorships. 

CAC Board President, Scott Kinmond, noted that the 1K was, “by far the easiest and most enjoyable race I’ve ever participated in.” The one kilometer race brought participants through town onto Union Street for a stop at the Child Advocacy Center to refuel with a twinkie or some potato chips.  Participants then circled back to Main Street and were treated to a beer at each of the aforementioned brewing companies after their arduous trek through town. 

The organizer of the event, Adam Dow, says “Although we had a fun day and this was certainly a fun event we don’t want to lose sight of how serious and important the work of the Child Advocacy Center is for kids in our community.”  The Child Advocacy Center is a non-profit agency that provides a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team approach and skilled forensic interviewing services to aid in the investigation of child abuse cases in Carroll County.  These services are available and used by all of Carroll County’s Law Enforcement Agencies, the Carroll County Attorney’s Office and the Division of Children Youth and Families.
