WOMEN OF COURAGE LUNCHEON

Whether you are new to  Children's Advocacy Centers of Texas (CACTX) or you’ve attended this event in the past, we’d be honored to have you participate this year. The event will look a little different as we all congregate virtually, but the purpose is the same:

To ensure children have access to safety, justice, and healing in the face of abuse.

We are excited to bring you a reimagined and engaging event on August 20th, featuring a keynote from our Chief Executive Officer, Joy Rauls, appearances from several CACTX friends, and a milestone update on the future of CACTX.

This event is sure to provide you with renewed inspiration to help end child sexual abuse. 

Children's Advocacy Center of Texas presents the

2020 Women of Courage Virtual Luncheon

Thursday, August 20th at 11:30 a.m.

MY SAFE SPACE: A ROOM MAKEOVER PROJECT

When children experience or witness a traumatic event in their immediate personal space, such as their bedroom or bathroom, these spaces can be reminders of their worst memories.

Based on a 2015 Women of Courage grant award to Alliance For Children, the CAC serving Tarrant County, My Safe Space: A Room Makeover Project provides funding for CACs to transform spaces in which children impacted by trauma can begin their healing. In most cases, these children are going back to the home in which the abuse occurred. This space may have been violated by the perpetrator of their abuse, or may have been a part of investigative actions which cause furniture to be taken for the purpose of evidence collection in the criminal investigation.

Women of Courage My Safe Space funding is available to all 71 CACs in Texas and more than half of the CACs participated in the inaugural year. As the Women of Courage membership grows, the reach of the My Safe Space grant will increase the number of rooms being made over for more children throughout the state.

Whether it’s a lamp, new bedding, an area rug, curtain treatments, throw pillows, or painting the walls, these room makeovers are a simple yet powerful act of creating a positive and safe new environment for child victims.

In an effort to give abused children a public voice, Women of Courage filmed our very own Storytelling Project, a community awareness initiative to confront the issue and ignite visibility and awareness to openly talk about child sexual abuse.
