Hope at the CenterAugust 20, 2014
Since 1991, the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) has provided hope and healing to the most severely abused children in Dallas County. Last year alone, DCAC provided free services to more than 2,400 children who were sexually abused, severely physically abused, or who had witnessed a violent crime.
DCAC provides a warm, child-friendly environment to help children who are referred by law enforcement or child protective services. DCAC has expert child therapists who provide art therapy, play therapy, animal assisted therapy and music therapy to help children process trauma and heal emotional scars as a result of abuse.
In addition, DCAC houses the Child Abuse Unit of the Dallas Police Department, five units of CPS, and an Assistant District Attorney. Having all of these professionals under one roof drives collaboration and communication in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse cases.
Thank you for helping Which Wich and Project PB&J provide some comfort to these children and their families.
