Thomas M. King, LICSW
Our Executive Director since 2006, Tom got his passion for the CAC movement when he served as the child forensic interviewer for Hampden County District Attorney back in 1997. “Seeing the impact of systems working together to better the lives of children is something that fuels me everyday to ensure our work knows no bounds. Child victims deserve nothing less than the amazing response of a Children’s Advocacy Center to help them on the road to healing, hope and justice.” Tom holds a certificate from the Institute for Nonprofit Management & Leadership at the Boston University School of Management, in addition to a Master of Social Work degree from the Smith College School of Social Work, and a BA in Psychology from the College of the Holy Cross.
