Safeguarding children

Making a lasting impact

For more than 30 years, the Center has been the first stop for children in Travis County who are suspected victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and for children who have witnessed a violent crime.

Everyone was kind, calming, and most importantly gave us a sense of safety.
