Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center
5351 Samuell Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75228

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. Last year, DCAC served more than 2,400 children (and their non-offending family members) who were sexually abused, severely physically abused, or who had witnessed a violent crime. DCAC provides a warm, child-friendly environment to help children who are referred by law enforcement or CPS. Our average client is a 9-10 year-old girl, sexually abused by someone she knows and trusts.

DCAC offers forensic interview services and listens to the child’s story in a non-leading, developmentally-appropriate manner while law enforcement and CPS observe in separate room. This reduces trauma for the child and creates the foundation for a much stronger court case. DCAC has expert child therapists who provide individual, group and family therapy via unique avenues such as: art therapy, play therapy, animal assisted therapy and music therapy free of charge. Clients are eligible to receive therapy services as long as necessary to enhance the potential for long term stability. DCAC is also known throughout the country as a leader in educating professionals about crimes against children. Each year, DCAC hosts the world’s largest professional training conference for federal, state and local law enforcement professionals, prosecutors, therapists and others who fight crimes against children and, in our new training facility, will begin similar year-round trainings for these professionals.
