Center for Assault Treatment Services


Our vision is of a world in which every child and adult are free of abuse, neglect and exploitation and able to achieve his or her full potential for a health filled, responsible and productive life.


Every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted and every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten in the U.S.

The Center for Assault Treatment Services (CATS) of Northridge Hospital is the only 24-hour/7-day per-week program in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys that provides support for sexually abused women and children.

CATS’ mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive care to victims of domestic and sexual assault and child victims of sexual abuse in a supportive and comforting environment. CATS treats more than 1,000 children and adults for sexual abuse and assault as well as domestic violence each year.

The CATS team trains thousands of community leaders in mandated child abuse reporting guidelines. The program’s four service components help victims begin the recovery process while providing law enforcement with evidence to assist with the investigation process.

  • Case-managed counseling and referrals
  • Forensic interviews
  • Medical examinations in a supportive environment
  • Outreach and training

For more information call (818) 908-8632, or visit the CATS website. Learn more about CATS by viewing the video "Respect and Dignity for Abuse VIctims".
