Dallas Children's Advocacy Center


The mission of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues. DCAC coordinates the investigation and prosecution of the most severe cases of child abuse in our community.

In 2014 DCAC served more than 4,000 children (and their non-offending family members) who were sexually abused, severely physically abused, or who had witnessed a violent crime. DCAC’s average client is a 9-10 year-old girl, sexually abused by someone she knows and trusts.

DCAC houses the Child Abuse Unit of the Dallas Police Department, five units of CPS, and an Assistant District Attorney. Having all of these professionals under one roof drives collaboration and communication in the very sensitive cases that DCAC coordinates. 

Dallas Junior Forum members volunteer at the annual Crimes Against Children Conference, provide support at the Center, and work on special projects as they arise.
