On November 28th, two of our therapists conducted a training for our MDT team on self-care for first responders and mental health providers in a culture of mass shootings. As part of that training, 4 four therapy dogs, and their handlers, from Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs were present at the end of the training and stayed afterward for some calming presence for our staff and MDT partners. Many of the MDT team were able to visit with the dogs. We thank Ruby, Snow, Cooper, Coco, and their handlers for spending time at the center.

Safety. Healing. Justice.

The mission of Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is to provide safety, healing, and justice to children victimized by abuse or neglect in our community. Achieving this requires multi-disciplinary team approach; under one roof, we house law enforcement, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), therapists, and family advocates. Additionally, we work with the District Attorney’s office to ensure that justice is served.

KEY FACTS:

•Each year, more than 5,000 reports of child abuse or neglect are made here in Collin County.

•For more than 25 years, we have provided critical services to children and non-offending family members victimized by neglect in our community, free of charge.
