Who We Are
Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County exists to minimize the trauma children must face when they have been victimized by abuse. Child victims of abuse need the careful attention of professionals trained to address their special needs. In the past, each victim seeking help faced multiple contacts with different community professionals, creating a maze of confusion. Instead of being forced to go from agency to agency, families come to one place where there is a love for children, passion for justice, and a vision for restored childhood.
Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County facilitates investigations of physical and sexual child abuse cases in Smith County. All of the cases referred to the multidisciplinary team are from either law enforcement agencies or Department of Family & Protective Services Child Protective Services.

Relationships developed with individuals, foundations, corporations, and community organizations, in combination with special events, fundraisers, in-kind donations and federal and state grants, serve to create a solid and diversified funding base.
