One of Major League Baseball’s most successful pitchers, R. A. Dickey, speaks from the heart when he shares this unbelievable statistic. He knows this to be a reality. Dickey is a child sexual abuse survivor speaking out on behalf of the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas to share an important message.
Efforts to fight child abuse across Texas are getting a significant boost with the use of state-of-the-art mobile forensic interview technology. Eighteen children’s advocacy centers in Texas submitted applications to receive Mobile Forensic Interview (MFI) equipment through a $175,000 grant from the Governor’s Office, Criminal Justice Division.
In an effort for team facilitators to be more effective in their roles, Children’s Advocacy Centers™ of Texas (CACTX) developed a new training entitled, Facilitator’s Guide to Effective Case Review. The training provides participants with the knowledge, tools and best practices they need to implement and sustain a more productive case review process.
The RGK Foundation in Austin awarded CACTX with new funding in the amount of $190,000 to support the critical mental health needs of Texas’ child sexual abuse victims. We are grateful for this generous grant, which will help develop the “backbone” of our plan as we strive to make mental health a cornerstone piece of CACTX programs and services. This funding allows CACTX to establish an infrastructure for a comprehensive mental health program. Read more.
