The Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County

The Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County provides a safe place to come for information. We help families sort out information and learn where to begin when child abuse occurs. We provide community outreach through training and partnerships with local organizations dedicated to child advocacy. 

Starting Point

Starting Point: Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence is a private non-profit agency providing services to victims of domestic violence in Carroll County, NH since 1981.

Starting Point's Board of Directors, staff and volunteers are committed to working and living in a community where individuals do not tolerate the perpetuation of domestic violence, sexual violence and/or stalking, and the belief systems which allow these abuses to thrive.

Like many small non-profit organizations, Starting Point began as a grassroots response to a pressing community need. The agency, then known as Carroll County Task Force on Domestic Violence and later Carroll County Against Domestic Violence & Rape, originally consisted of a part-time crisis line in the bedroom of a former domestic violence victim. The agency has gradually evolved into a county-wide organization with seven full-time staff members, one part-time staff member, and over 30 volunteers. We could not do all we do without our trained and dedicated volunteer pool that provides the agency with over 15,000 hours of service every year.

All of Starting Point's services are free and confidential.

Our current services include:

  • 24-hour support line
  • Shelter for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking
  • Court and hospital advocacy
  • Support groups
  • Child Advocacy Center accompaniment
  • Criminal justice accompaniment
  • In school education/prevention programs
  • Professional education programs
  • Community education programs
