Protecting Young Lives. Justice for Small Voices.

Healing for Big Futures.

The Child Advocacy Center of Cooke County is committed to the well-being of children living in our communities. We stand on the firm foundation that children need a safe place to live and thrive, protection from violence and when victimized, they deserve justice. Our mission is to provide a place where justice and healing can begin through interagency cooperation and community education.

Child victims of abuse and neglect or children who witness a crime find caring professionals and volunteers dedicated to reducing the trauma and assisting them through their journey. Families find support and resources. Most importantly this is the place where small voices can be heard, and the children can find help to begin healing.
