Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month

Smith County, Texas- One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused by their 18th birthday. In 2020, a record-setting 873 children came to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County (CAC) to tell their story and receive help, even with children being out of school for 5 months. Yet, hundreds more have yet to come forward. Caring CAC professionals are part of a multidisciplinary team, including Law Enforcement Agencies, Department of Family and Protective Services, District Attorney’s Office, and medical practitioners, that works to ensure each child has the opportunity to tell their story to one of the Children’s Advocacy Center specially-trained Forensic Interviewers, receive advocacy and resources, medical attention and therapy, all at no cost to the children or their families.

April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month. The Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County uses this opportunity to raise awareness and engage the community to show support and concern for our most vulnerable. All are invited to join in the race against child abuse and neglect, to fight for and protect the children under our care.
