Our Prevention Programs Help to Reduce Child Abuse

Our Prevention Programs Help to Reduce Child Abuse

The Children's Advocacy Center of Central Texas provides excellent services to child victims of abuse, however, we strive to reduce the need for those services and eliminate the number of victims in our community. The prevention programs provided by the CACCT help to drastically reduce the number of victimized children in our community.
