Children are referred to the Center for Child Protection for services exclusively through law enforcement and Child Protective Services when one or more of the following circumstances have occurred:
- A child made an outcry of sexual abuse.
- A child has experienced physical abuse or neglect.
- A child has witnessed a violent crime.
The Center for Child Protection is the only nonprofit in Travis County involved in the investigation of crimes against children. Together with law enforcement, Child Protective Services (CPS), medical professionals and prosecution, the Center works to ensure that a child’s best interest is at the core of the investigative process.
