Children's Advocacy Center of Smith Co.

Support the Children's Advocacy Center

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County (CACSC) exists to minimize the trauma children face when they have been victimized by physical or sexual abuse, or have witnessed a violent crime. We are part of a multidisciplinary team, including Law Enforcement Agencies, Department of Family & Protective Services, District Attorney's Office, and the medical community, that works to ensure children (1,034 in 2022) have the opportunity to tell their stories to a specially trained Forensic Interviewer, receive guidance and support from Family Advocates, and begin the healing process with our Medical Team and Trauma-Focused Therapists. In addition, Community Education provides personal safety instruction for school children to prevent or report abuse and Trauma Informed Schools equips educators to be sensitive to school children who may have experienced trauma.
