Working Together to Protect Children and Families
The Manistee County Child Advocacy Center (MCCAC) provides a safe place for children at risk of abuse or neglect, and strengthens families through prevention, advocacy, and a coordinated, trauma-informed response to allegations of severe physical or sexual abuse.
You Can Help Others.
If you are concerned about possible child abuse and neglect, you can safely report it safely by contacting professionally-trained organizations who can provide effective protection and high-quality care.
If you suspect a child under the age of 18 is being abused or neglected, or is at risk for abuse or neglect, you should make a report to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Centralized Intake by calling 1-855-444-3911 and contacting your local law enforcement agency.
If this is an emergency, please call 911.
In a life-threatening emergency, dial 911 or contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
To report child abuse in a different state, please call the National Child Abuse Hotline at
