What We Do

Advocacy Center for Children of Galveston County

Each child victim or witness is interviewed by a specially trained professional, thus, reducing the number of times the child victim must relate the incident. Interviews are conducted in a child-friendly setting.

We provide:

Coordination of medical evaluations.

Weekly meetings between all agencies to maximize the investigative process and provide timely intervention and disposition.

Crisis therapy for child victims and non-offending family members in the midst of disclosure of abuse.

Child Fatality Review Team meetings and facilitation.

Family Advocate/Victim Services Program.

Central information and referral source for families throughout the life of the case.

Assistance with Crime Victim Compensation application and procedure.

Computerized data files provide comprehensive statistical information about physical and sexual abuse.

Training and education for professionals and the community.
