Diversity Statement

In order to fully accomplish Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County’s (CACSC) mission, we believe that we must be aware of and responsive to the needs of everyone in the community whom we serve. Therefore, our vision statement to respect and value diversity is at the core of the work we do. Our organizational culture will value people of all backgrounds and will foster an environment of respect, openness, learning, integrity, and honesty. CACSC’s commitment to inclusiveness will be evident in our organizational structure, policies, procedures, board of directors, individual staff members, volunteers, donors and within our organizational goals and future vision.

Giving hope to victims only happens with the help of people like you.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, our ability to help children victimized by abuse hinges upon the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations, and community organizations who see the need and choose to stand in the gap.
