The Long Foundation, a Texas nonprofit corporation, recently awarded the Center for Child Protection a $10,000 grant for their bilingual Family Advocate Program.
The Family Advocate Program helps children and their families maintain stability by connecting them with community resources and providing ongoing case management. Family Advocates also provide emergency clinical assessments, mental health observations and crisis counseling.
“This grant will ensure that the Center is able to continue to serve Spanish-speaking victims of child abuse as well as their families as they make the journey through the investigative process,” said Michael Torres, Center for Child Protection executive director.
The mission of The Long Foundation is to support programs throughout Texas that will provide opportunities for children and young adults to improve their economic and social potential, as well as that of their communities. Additionally, the Foundation supports programs for the visual and performing arts that will add to the cultural enrichment of the state, and in particular the Austin Metropolitan areas.
