Measuring Outcomes

Ohio’s Children’s Advocacy Centers provide children and families with healing and justice in a setting they can trust. We know they do because of more than 1400 survey responses we collect each year from caregivers and partners.

The Outcome Measurement System (OMS) helps CACs define their successes in serving children and families while helping them benchmark their progress against the work of a nationwide movement. This rich dataset demonstrates the value of the work CACs provide to children and families in Ohio and the success of the CAC model in the eyes of the partners that make it possible.

What parents are saying about their experience at Ohio CAC’s:

The people were so nice. I've never been anywhere where everyone so showed so much compassion. It's what we needed.

Very informative about the trauma and addressed it immediately! I appreciated that because I thought she may just be depressed about it. Trauma was the furthest thing from my mind.

She was excited to come. She felt she was being heard.

My kids seemed to feel and act as if they were at home.

Everyone made my child feel comfortable, confident, and safe.

Thanks for coming together so she doesn't have to repeat the story over and over again.
