Ellen Zornes recognized for Children's Advocacy

By Candice Humphrey, from Kristin Jacobson

On Monday, March 4th, at 2 pm in the Capitol Rotunda, the Children's Advocacy Centers of Kentucky honored Ellen Zornes among 16 others who have shown dedication to serving child victims of abuse.

Zornes was nominated as a Legendary Partner by Lake Cumberland Children's Advocacy Center (LCCAC) in recognition of her commitment to their center for nearly 20years. As board president, she has filled a multitude of roles within the agency and has always stepped up where needed. LCCAC staff says she has helped guide them through many seasons and deserves more credit than she is willing to accept for where the center is today.


Ellen actively serves within her community and is described as one of the busiest retired people in the area. She is continually striving to build a better community for the future generations to come. Through her guidance and understanding, LCCAC maintains a welcoming environment for children and the staff that serves them.

Attorney General Russell Coleman provided the opening remarks for the ceremony and placed a cape on each Legendary Partner to highlight their heroic work.

Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne counties are served by Cumberland Valley Children's Advocacy Center.

Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) are child-focused facilities that coordinate the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse while helping abused children heal. CACs in Kentucky serve more than 7,000 children each year by providing forensic interviews, victim advocacy, medical exams, and mental health services to child victims of abuse and their non-offending caregivers.

Working with partner agencies is essential to the CAC and multidisciplinary team model. The services provided by Kentucky's Children's Advocacy Centers connect and support various agencies, including hundreds of law enforcement agencies, Department of Community-Based Services social workers, Commonwealth and County Attorney Offices, and many more medical providers, therapists, educators, volunteers, board members, and more.

Children's Advocacy Centers of Kentucky is the statewide coalition of CACs dedicated to helping every child impacted by abuse. CAC Kentucky connects local CACs and their partners with the tools, resources, and support needed to provide a comprehensive response to child abuse.
