A Message from our Director

I am honored to be the Executive Director of this amazing organization. We believe that all children deserve to feel safe and to live a life free from sexual abuse.  We are proud to be part of the national effort to end child sexual abuse and hope that you will join us in this endeavor.

The Children’s Assessment Center (The CAC) is the only children’s advocacy center in Harris County. We are dedicated to providing professional services to victims to help them heal from abuse. Our staff consists of specially trained experts that offer various types of treatment here at our facility that are free of charge to the thousands of children that come to The CAC each year. We are committed to reducing the amount of children who enter adulthood with unresolved trauma as a result of their abuse.

The sad truth is that children are in danger now more than ever.  Children are potentially at risk in schools, at social events, and even when they are on the internet. Prevention and awareness training is key in our fight against child sexual abuse.  This can be done in two ways: (1) reducing the number of children that are abused through prevention training, and (2) increasing community awareness to make families aware that help is available. By receiving trainings on these issues adults can intervene early and prevent further abuse. Our trainings focus on recognizing the signs and symptoms of abuse, reducing risks to children, and effective communication for parents.

We need your help to protect children within Harris County.  Please consider coming by for a tour of our facility or watching one of our prevention trainings to learn how you can help us end child sexual abuse.
