Child Abuse Intervention Centers

Oregon’s Child Abuse Intervention Centers (CAIC) were created to minimize trauma for child abuse victims by focusing on the fundamental needs of the child.

By working in partnership with child protective services, law enforcement and other medical and mental health providers, CAICs have been designed to provide services, based on each child’s needs, in a neutral, child-focused environment and to be a resource for the child and their caregivers.


Each CAIC is uniquely suited to serve the needs of their communities. While services provided vary from county to county, generally services include:

• Interviews of children where allegations of child abuse have been made
• Medical evaluations
• Mental health treatment and/or referrals
• Provision or coordination of other victim services

Additional services are offered depending upon the individual child and family needs based upon the local community resources.
