The mission of the Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center is to advocate for and provide services to abused children and their families in the investigation, prosecution, treatment, and prevention of child abuse, and to reduce the trauma to children by coordinating a multi-disciplinary approach.
The Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center provides a warm, homelike environment for children to come when there are allegations of abuse and/or neglect. Primary emphasis is placed on the well-being of the child to prevent abuse by facilitating the efforts of partner agencies which include: law enforcement, Child Protective Services, the County Attorney’s office, as well as medical and mental health professionals.
We meet this mission by providing:
- Forensic interviews
We conduct recorded forensic interviews of children about allegations of abuse and/or neglect. These interviews are monitored in real time by investigators from law enforcement, Child Protective Services, and prosecutors, thereby eliminating the need for traumatic multiple interviews.
- Coordinate investigations
- Medical Accompaniment
- Victim assistance, Counseling & Referrals
