More about Children's Advocacy Center of Central Texas

At Children’s Advocacy Center Of Central Texas (CACCT), their mission is to provide comprehensive services to protect, promote healing, and enhance the quality of life for abused and neglected children. No child should have to experience that kind of pain and horror. They work tirelessly to create bright futures for children who have suffered this injustice.

In 2017, more than 1,400 children were confirmed victims of child abuse in Central Texas. These children need specialized services, starting with investigation and proceeding through rehabilitation. Our programs are designed to reduce the effects of trauma on these young children and ensure that collaborative investigation and recovery services are available for them.
