Children’s Advocacy Centers of Oklahoma (CACO) welcomed a new Executive Director, Carrie Little, in March 2020.
Little brings with her more than 19 years of experience in the social work field including leadership roles in child welfare and domestic violence prevention in the states of Oklahoma, California, and Colorado. She has experience in non-profit leadership, and left her role as Vice President of Administrative Affairs for The Parent Child Center of Tulsa to join CACO. Little has lived in Tulsa for over 10 years, and served as the Executive Director of the Child Advocacy Center in Canadian County before moving to Tulsa in 2009.
There are 20 accredited Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) in the state of Oklahoma. CACO serves as the CACs’ State Chapter, providing the Centers with training and technical support in their efforts to provide services to suspected or confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect.
In FY 2019, OKDHS reported that there were 15,809 confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect in Oklahoma. Oklahoma CACs serve an average of 9,285 of those children each year providing forensic interviews, advocacy, and medical exams. CACs bring together multiple professions to help advocate for the best interests of children during child abuse investigations.
“Oklahoma’s child abuse and neglect numbers reflect a crisis,” says Little. “Studies indicate that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys in our state will be abused before their 18th birthday. This is unacceptable. I am proud to join a team of CAC professionals including victim advocates, medical professionals, law enforcement, mental health providers, prosecution teams, and child protective services to ensure that each child we serve across Oklahoma receives state of the art comprehensive care which can set him or her on a path of healing. CACO’s mission is to ensure the development, growth, and continuation of Children’s Advocacy Centers in Oklahoma.”
