News & Events
Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas launches a new campaign under the One with Courage initiative. “Courage to Report. Courage to Heal” will focus not only on the importance of reporting abuse, but also how reporting ultimately enables these children to get the healing services they need to recover and lead happy, productive lives.
Joy Rauls, executive director of Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) of Texas, thanks the Amerigroup Foundation for their recent grant to assist children with disabilities that are victims of crime. Studies have long established that children with disabilities are disproportionately criminally victimized. In order for these children to receive the justice and healing they deserve, our network of local CACs must have the tools and training required to deliver specialized service to this population. This grant will assist in this important endeavor. Watch this video to learn more.
Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas develops training curriculum and multi-disciplinary resource guide to meet the needs of special populations and to enhance the delivery of culturally competent services.
The Victim’s Informer publishes an article by CACTX on recent changes in legislation and what this means for CACs across the state.
