"The old saying is 'two heads are better than one'. This simple phrase sums up my strong belief in a collaborative approach to victim services. When we all bring our experience and expertise to the same table, ultimately the end result is outstanding services for victims' and their families. This is what the CAC is all about." - Juliane Johnson

"I am excited to be working for such a great organization with a group of people who care so much for children and are committed to make their lives better. I hope to use my experience I gained while working in a variety of industries such as insurance, lab, financial and health food services, and most recently for a company providing services for developmentally disabled adults. I was looking for someplace where I could be part of a team that helps others and I am so glad I found the Child Advocacy Center." - Theresa Lewis
