Plans are in motion to build 10 specially designed regional centers throughout Ohio. These centers will bring together highly trained teams of professionals to perform forensic interviews and collect evidence in crimes against adults with disabilities, including cases of assault, sexual violence, domestic violence and human trafficking.

The Adult Advocacy Centers will break new ground by incorporating both universal and multi-sensory design into each location, allowing us to serve each client safely and purposefully, according to their individual needs. These centers will allow all adults with disabilities to access victim services in an equal, inclusive and accessible way, no matter where they live in the state. The AACs model is the first of its kind anywhere in the world.

Envision the future with us! Browse through our new full-color brochure to see architectural illustrations of the exterior of the centers and read more about this world-changing work.
