Overview

Small Talk is a nationally accredited child advocacy center (CAC). A CAC is a child-friendly facility in which law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy professionals work together to investigate abuse, help children heal from abuse, and hold offenders accountable. 

Small Talk is where children who are victims of abuse are interviewed and offered therapy at no cost.

Small Talk is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with a Board of Directors, Executive Director, Crisis Counselors and Forensic interviewers. Small Talk runs an operational budget sustained through grants and donations. Small Talk relies on the generous donations of corporations, businesses and individuals.  Your donation supports these children who have the courage to speak and gives them the opportunity to heal.

Small Talk is supported by all 12 local law enforcement agencies, Ingham County Prosecutor's Office, Sparrow Hospital and Children's Protective Services. 

Mission statement
