Advocating for our city's most vulnerable citizens since 1992
In 1992 concerned citizens from Blanco, Burnet, Llano, Mason, and San Saba counties researched ways to improve the community response to child abuse in our counties. This research identified Children’s Advocacy Centers as the primary strategy to correct the inconsistencies in investigations and to stop re-victimization of the child by the very agencies responsible for protecting the child.
After careful consultation with various community agencies and community leaders, a Board of Directors with representatives from the various counties was formed. By-Laws were written, non-profit status was established, Interagency Agreements and Cooperative Working Agreements were signed by all concerned agencies, office space was donated and the first fundraiser was coordinated.
The Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center has been serving the children of those communities for over twenty years and each year the number of child victims and their non-offending family members receiving services increases. Within the first ten years of service the Center saw a 196% increase in victims served. The need for services to this very special population continues to increase and the Center cannot fulfill its mission without your generous support.
