Center for Child Protection

The Center for Child Protection, a nationally accredited children’s advocacy center, is the first stop for children in Travis County who are suspected victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and neglect and for children who have witnessed a violent crime. The Center is a child friendly, specially-equipped facility where children go for recorded forensic interviews, medical exams, counseling and intervention during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases. It is the only nonprofit in Travis County involved in the investigation of crimes against children and is part of the Child Protection Team, which consists of local law enforcement, medical providers, DFPS and district attorneys. All services are provided to children and their protective caregivers at no charge and are available in English and Spanish.

The Center’s Education Services Department offers educational programs to professionals, parents and community organizations on identification, reporting and prevention of child abuse and neglect. The information can be tailored to your agency or group and are available free of charge, in English and Spanish.
