Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Intervention Advisory Council

The CAMI Advisory Committee advises the Oregon Crime Victims' Services Division (CVSD) regarding the allocation and administration of CAMI Account - the primary source of state funding for a coordinated community response to the intervention, assessment, and investigation of child abuse. CAMI funds are distributed through multidisciplinary teams (MDTs), which are required by Oregon law and established in each county under the leadership of the local district attorney. CAMI funds are also distributed directly to five non-profit child abuse intervention centers for the provision of specialized regional assistance to the MDTs.

For more information please see CAMI Regional Service Providers.
