Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Intervention (CAMI) Fund

The Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Intervention (CAMI) Account is 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 about these organizations please see CAMI Regional Service Providers.

Karly’s Law was enacted in 2008 to improve and intensify the way that MDTs conduct physical abuse investigations. At the root of Karly’s Law is the mandate for investigators to identify suspicious physical injuries and then respond with specific medical referrals. Today, children with suspicious physical injuries must be referred to a child-abuse-trained designated medical professional for evaluation and determination. For more information please see Karly's Law.
