Lotus Children's Advocacy Center

Children's Advocacy Center

Help a Child Stay Healthy and Strong

Children are resilient and strong, just like you are. Coming here was the first step in providing hope and healing for the child in your life who needs help.

We are Lotus. We believe it’s possible for everyone to grow above the challenges which many of us face in life. Children are the most capable of us all.

Lotus Children’s Advocacy Center is Kentucky’s designated advocacy center serving children and families who have experienced all forms of child abuse and neglect. We provide free, specialized services to children from McCracken, Calloway, Marshall, Graves, Hickman, Fulton, Ballard and Carlisle Counties. We are committed to serving all survivors and do not discriminate against anyone on any basis. All are welcome.

Formerly PASAC (Purchase Area Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center), Lotus has brought hope to survivors for more than 30 years! We are committed to walk beside children in our community as they grow. But we won’t stop there, we are committed to building a safe, violence-free community. We weren’t able to prevent today’s situation, but we will not stop trying.

“Having an advocate be involved in my criminal cases at the very beginning means my survivor has someone with them through the whole process. Lotus’s forensic interviewing skills are unprecedented and are in many cases the best evidence we have for prosecution.”
