What to Expect at the CAC
It might feel scary to come to the CAC with your child. Not knowing what will happen might be part of what makes it scary. Below you will find information about what happens before, during, and after your time at the CAC. We also have answers to questions we get a lot. We are here to answer your questions so please call if you have them!
Setting up the appointment
We will call you to set up a time for you to come in. We will ask you if your child has special needs or if there are things we need to know about your child before you get here. We will make sure you have good directions to the center and are sure of where you are going. Our office is at the Thayer Center for Health at MaineGeneral. We can answer questions over the phone, too.
When you get here
You will be be greeted in the lobby of the Thayer Center for Health at MaineGeneral by volunteers. They are usually wearing blue jackets. They will bring you to our office.
Then you will spend a few minutes with our Family Services Coordinator getting settled in the family room. Soon after you arrive, another staff member called a Forensic Interviewer will bring you into another room. Your child (or children) will stay in the family room with our staff. You will have a chance to meet the team that will work on your child's case. You can see where your child will be interviewed and ask any questions. Then you will go back into the family room.
