Durant Children’s Center Earns Reaccreditation

March 1, 2021

Hartsville, SC – The Elizabeth Pettigrew Durant Children’s Fourth Judicial Circuit Satellite Center has been awarded re-accreditation by National Children’s Alliance following an extensive application and site review process. Accreditation is the highest level of membership with the National Children’s Alliance and denotes excellence in service provision. The 4th Judicial Circuit is a division of the South Carolina judicial system that oversees the counties of Chesterfield, Marlboro, Darlington and Dillon.

As the accrediting agency for Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) across the country, National Children’s Alliance awards various levels of accreditation and membership to centers responding to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient, and put the needs of child victims of abuse first. Through its more than 750 Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) around the country, the National Children’s Alliance empowers local communities to effectively respond to victims of child abuse by setting clear and specific standards for accreditation. Accredited CACs must undergo a re-accreditation process every five years to ensure that best practices are continually being applied.

SCNCAC is grateful for the work of all the professionals at our member Children’s Advocacy Center in Hartsville in achieving this milestone that will continue to bring accredited Children’s Advocacy Center services to  Chesterfield, Darlington, Marlboro, Williamsburg and Sumter counties.
