Our History

In 1995 Child Abuse Intervention Centers across the state of Oregon joined together to establish the Oregon Network of Child Abuse Intervention Centers, commonly referred to as “The Network”. Realizing that all CAICs had common goals, the centers came together with the purpose of improving the services provided to all abused children in Oregon. By unifying their efforts, the members of The Network have been able to promote best practice standards, without compromising the unique needs of each community.

In 2009, The Network contracted with its first Statewide Coordinator to help facilitate and coordinate the efforts of the organization. This position quickly grew and today the Statewide Coordinator runs the day-to-day business of the organization, including organizing the quarterly Network meetings, advocating for Oregon’s Child Abuse Intervention Centers, and managing grants to centers.

The Network became an Accredited State Chapter of the National Children’s Alliance in 2010. The Network continues to serve as a leading resource within Oregon for Child Abuse Intervention Centers and a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary response to child abuse.
