Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas, Inc. (CACTX) will host the biennial Partners in Courage Dinner and Awards Ceremony on January 31, 2017 in conjunction with CACTX Capitol Day. Senator Jane Nelson will be honored with the 2017 Partners in Courage Award, an honor that is bestowed upon a legislative champion who has demonstrated tremendous courage as an advocate in the fight against child abuse. CACTX honors Senator Jane Nelson as a “partner in courage” who represents commitment at the state level that is equivalent to the profound courage that child victims of abuse possess when they walk through the doors of a children’s advocacy center.
Halloween is an exciting time for children and adults alike. We encourage each of you to enjoy trick-or-treating with your families but remember to use care and caution throughout the evening.
