Cooper‐Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center (CAMCAC) was founded in Hot Springs, Arkansas by Mercy in 2003. The Center is a Mercy outreach ministry and serves its surrounding communities with satellite centers in Saline and Polk counties.
CAMCAC offers a safe, child-friendly environment, where a comprehensive and coordinated approach is taken in response to allegations of child abuse for children ages birth to 18 years. The Center is one of 17 advocacy centers in the state of Arkansas and has the unique distinction of being the only hospital-based child advocacy center in the state. The CAMCAC serves more than 700 clients annually in a six county geographic area and has offices located in both Hot Springs, Benton and Mena. In 2012, CAMCAC was awarded the highest level of membership with National Children’s Alliance, which is the accrediting agency for Children’s Advocacy Centers.

In sponsoring a child or making a philanthropic contribution of any amount, you can help provide Christmas gifts for children in need throughout our community.
