2,800 square foot, two floors, six therapy offices, and upgraded facilities. Those are the dimensions and some of the numbers for the new child advocacy center, or CAC, building that opened in Monongalia County on Tuesday.
The building replaces their old space which was on Pineview Drive.
In addition to the offices the new facility also includes multiple other rooms that will be used for interviews and to help kids who have been the victims of abuse.
Dr. Laura Capage, the executive director of the CAC, told 5 News since they opened eight years ago they've seen the number of abuse cases go down in Mon County.
Capage said by moving into a new building they will have more tools to fight those types of crimes.
"What we're doing is working," Capage said. "But even one child being victimized is one child too many."
Capage mentioned even though they moved into their new building they still need to raise a little bit of money to pay for it.
