About Us

For over 25 years, Children's Advocacy Centers of Texas (CACTX) has served as the membership association for the state's 71 local children's advocacy centers (CACs), ensuring access to safety, justice, and healing for nearly one million Texas children impacted by abuse. As we continue to serve these children, CACTX is casting our vision upstream: to build a future where all children are free from child sexual abuse. Through collaborative partnerships and visionary, evidence-based prevention, awareness, and education strategies, we are working to stop child sexual abuse before it starts. 

A Partner: Cross-sector collaboration is the cornerstone of the CAC model, and CACTX is focused on bringing a variety of voices to the table and empowering partners and members to create scalable, adaptable strategies to further our efforts.

Galvanizing: CACTX provides the leadership needed to effectuate change and empower communities to make the issue of child abuse a top priority and work together to eradicate child sexual abuse.

Evidence-Informed: Research and evidence-based strategies are at the forefront of everything CACTX does because we know success in the fight against child abuse requires the continual evaluation of current efforts and exploration of new, more effective methods to serve and protect children.

Inescapable: CACTX recognizes the sense of urgency that surrounds the issue of child abuse. Child sexual abuse is a preventable problem that demands a solution, and CACTX is working to sustainably support CACs to help young victims while also casting our vision upstream to prevent children from ever being victimized.

Visionary: CACTX aims to create lasting systemic change and is passionate about blazing a path to build a safer Texas for future generations.

Find a Local CAC

Children’s advocacy centers (CACs) operate on the fundamental belief that the best interests of the child victim should be protected as the case proceeds through the investigation and prosecution stages and beyond. CACs offer a child-friendly environment where child victims can feel safe talking about it, in the event something has happened to them.
