The Northern Michigan Children’s Assessment Center lightens the load for kids who’ve endured trauma

The Northern Michigan Children’s Assessment Center (NMCAC) is changing the experience for child victims of abuse and neglect—from a “scary and frightening” one to a safer, less distressing encounter.

“Before advocacy centers, children were being interviewed by police officers who are typically trained to deal with adults,” says Becky Yuncker, executive director at NMCAC, based in Roscommon, MI.

Yuncker has a long history of working in child advocacy centers, with more than 25 years in the field. The centers began to grow in popularity in the 1980s and provide direct services in working with law enforcement, prosecutors and child protective services to ensure that investigations involving minors are done in a child-friendly environment.
