What We Do

A big part of the funds that support the FCCAC, come from private donations. These donations support our efforts to help children and families deal with the impact of the abuse. You can choose to donate in honor of family, friends, or teachers or donate in your own name or anonymously.


The mission of Four Corners Child Advocacy Center is to strengthen our community's response to child abuse and neglect through prevention, intervention, education and advocacy.

Background Statement

Four Corners Child Advocacy Center provides a safe, child-friendly environment that eases the emotional trauma experienced by children during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases.

A local doctor, Dr. Robert Heyl, observed the trauma abused children endured, not only from the abuse, but from their experiences of having to repeat their story over and over to multiple agencies in various locations. He had a vision of a neutral, safe, child-centered structure designed to nurture the abused child and he discovered the child advocacy center model founded in Huntsville, Alabama.

In partnership with the Montezuma County Child Protection Team, the Montelores Mental Health Association, area businesses and concerned citizens the Four Corners Child Advocacy Center was established in 1993.

In 1995, our Center became a nationally accredited Child Advocacy Center.
