ABOUT US

Center for ChildProtection

OUR MISSION

Reduce trauma for children during the investigation and prosecution of crimes against children.

Every day, the Center serves approximately 3-5 new children who have either been physically abused, sexually abused, or have witnessed a violent crime. They arrive at the Center, bravely tell their story to a professional, and begin their journey to justice and healing. Without the support of the Travis County community, this opportunity wouldn’t be possible for these young victims.
