Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains Opens Doors to Public

Posted:

Their goal is provide child abuse victims in West Texas a friendly and non-threatening environment.  

Friday, as part of Child Abuse Awareness Month, the Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains opened its doors to the public to show the community what resources they offer.  

"Some of the cases that come through here will end up on trial in a court room. So we help prepare the kids when they go to court, and we'll also help the family as they go through the process of the trial," Carmen Aguirre, Executive Director of the Children's Advocacy Center, said.

The center is often confused with C.A.S.A. of the South Plains, but unlike C.A.S.A. - law enforcement contacts the Advocacy Center as soon as a case is reported. The agency works with the child throughout the investigation and the trial if there is one.
