Our History

The Children’s Assessment Center was founded in 1991 in Houston, Texas, to serve the needs of sexually abused children across Harris County. The CAC brings together social workers, physicians, attorneys and law enforcement professionals in one central location to provide a continuum of critical, coordinated services.

As a collaborative public/private partnership of Harris County Commissioners Court and The Children’s Assessment Center Foundation, The CAC represents a true partnership of the public and private sectors joining to provide the most effective service delivery to children and families.
