HCCAC’s Family Advocates serve as the initial point of contact for children and families who are referred to the Center for services. They will be your advocate for the life of the case and will be available to you to answer questions, assist you with Crime Victims’ Compensation (CVC) paperwork, assist with referrals to appropriate community resources that may be able to help you with food, housing, medical or other needs, and accompany you and your child to court should you request it. Additionally, if you have questions about the status of your case Family Advocates can work as a liaison between you and law enforcement, Department of Family and Protective Services and/or the District Attorney’s office.
At HCCAC, the Family Advocate’s primary focus is to provide protective caregivers with immediate crisis intervention, ongoing case management and follow-up care so caregivers have the support they need to take care of their child, their family, and themselves.
If you are a current HCCAC client and need support, please call us at 512-756-2607 and ask to speak with a Family Advocate.
The Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center is a place of Hope, Healing, and Justice for children and families in the aftermath of abuse as well as raising awareness and education of child abuse in our Community.
