About The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County

The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County facilitates and coordinates the complex investigation, prosecution and treatment of child sexual and/or severe physical abuse situations. The multi-disciplinary team approach minimizes the stress associated with the investigation in a child-sensitive, supportive, and safe environment. We serve as an advocate for both the child and the family throughout the entire process.


Psychology Intern

January 2022 - April 2022 Lapeer, MI
“One of aspects of this internship opportunity that I enjoyed the most, was interacting with the adolescents and their families. Families that come to the C.A.C. might not be in the best circumstances, and having the ability to feel safe and cared for during those times are what brought me absolute happiness. The individuals that work at the Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County are also what made this internship so enjoyable. Even though I was a psychology major in an environment focused on more social work, no one stopped me from exploring all the different areas that they had to offer. I loved helping out on the therapy side of the C.A.C. since it related to my degree, but my eyes were also opened to a new passion for safety awareness programs within school districts; something that the C.A.C. makes possible for Lapeer elementary school students. Although I found myself fascinated and intrigued with how all areas of the C.A.C fluidly worked together to provide the services they do, the smaller aspects of the internship such as keeping the office clean, doing crafts, taking calls, etc. were even enjoyable. I genuinely have no complaints!”
