What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Forensic Interviews

Forensic interviews are conducted by highly-trained, credentialed staff for child victims (age 2-17) of alleged physical and sexual abuse and for child witnesses to crimes. We serve as a neutral party in the investigative process, but prior to the existence of Child Advocacy Centers, if a child made an outcry of abuse, they may have had to tell the story of their experience to multiple people, multiple times in uncomfortable and intimidating settings. Child Advocacy Centers were created in the early 1990s to provide a safe place for a child to share their experience of abuse with a trained Forensic Interviewer, therefore reducing the potential of additional or recurring trauma.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Our Family Advocates are committed to providing support for families to help reduce trauma for the child and non-offending family members. The Family Advocate team provides ongoing support for families through the process of investigation, prosecution, and healing. Clients receive referrals for therapy, information on Victim’s Rights, and assistance in completing an application for Crime Victim’s Compensation. Family Advocates empower families by connecting them to needed resources in the community that sets them on the path of hope and healing.

Population(s) Served

We strive to empower students, school district faculty and staff, parents, community partners, and families in our eight-county region with the knowledge, awareness, and ability to recognize and report child abuse. Through our programs and presentations, we equip others with the tools necessary to help provide a voice to the voiceless. Our Center takes proactive steps in protecting children from child sexual abuse by educating adults in protective factors to recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Victims of child abuse often experience symptoms that can greatly impact their overall quality of life. Some children and teens develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and while these symptoms can be a normal reaction to abuse, it is important for children to learn healthy ways of coping and healing. Even if a child does not have symptoms, it can be beneficial for a child to speak with a trauma-focused therapist to process what happened. With the support of a protective caregiver and effective treatment, a child can recover without long-term negative effects. We have qualified, licensed therapists on staff that provide evidence-based therapy to victims of child abuse and their non-offending family members.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

With ever-changing protocols, education, and tactics required in this difficult line of work, our Center strives to bring valuable training to our multi-disciplinary team partners in law enforcement, prosecution, mental health, and advocacy in northeast Texas. In providing training opportunities to our partner agencies (particularly in our more rural areas), we can provide the most innovative, efficient, effective services to child victims of abuse and their families with a highly-trained multi-disciplinary team.

Population(s) Served

Our Center utilizes and provides the The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program as one of our modules for parents and families needing support. It is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world, backed up by more than 35 years of ongoing research. The program gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them build strong, healthy relationships, confidently manage their children’s behavior and prevent problems from developing and has been proven to work across cultures, socio-economic groups and various family structures.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Sep 01 - Aug 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
