Child Advocacy all Across Texas

When abuse or crime impacts a child, expert local support is needed. That's why CACTX stewards a statewide network of children's advocacy centers (CACs) to assist our most vulnerable Texans and is actively working toward solutions to prevent child sexual abuse.

98.5% of all Texans live in a county that is served by a local CAC.

313,169 reports from the statewide child abuse hotline were received by CACs.

64,938 children received critical services at a Texas CAC.

66% of abuse cases seen at a local CAC were sexual abuse.

Based on services from September 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023.
