THE WILLIAMSON COUNTY CHILDREN’S ADVOCACY CENTER
Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center has $15,000 for a technology upgrade for their Forensic Interview program
“Child victims of abuse are 59% more likely to be arrested as juveniles and 30% more likely to commit a violent crime. Conversely, children who receive quality intervention and therapy are significantly more likely to become productive and healthy contributing members of our community. The Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center was developed to provide a child-friendly environment for child victims to disclose their abuse, bring together a team of official investigation agencies, and provide quality therapeutic services to promote healing and restoration. Thanks to a grant from the Seeds of Strength, the Center will be upgrading their Audio Visual equipment to provide state of the art technology for the innocent victims of child abuse. The Center is extremely grateful for the support of the SOS. With their partnership, the Center will be able to provide exceptional quality in their forensic interview services to over 600 victims each year.
The WCCAC provides services to Williamson County children (ages 2-17) who have suffered sexual or physical abuse, may be a witness to abuse or crime, or may be at risk in their own home. Long term, the WCCAC endeavors to reduce trauma to victims of child abuse and ultimately break the cycle of abuse.”
