The Children’s Advocacy Center of Hidalgo County, Inc. works with Law Enforcement, Child Protective Services and the District Attorney's office in the investigation and intervention of Child Abuse cases.
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Hidalgo County was established in June of 2000 when a local two-year old's life ended tragically as a result of abuse. It is part of a much larger network of centers across the United States that are committed to protecting children from abuse and neglect. The National Children’s Advocacy Center has been a beacon of hope for countless victims of abuse since it’s founding in Huntsville, Alabama in 1985 by then District Attorney, Robert E. “Bud” Cramer.
The national organization has since solidified its reputation as an advocate and educator on issues of abuse and neglect against children. There are now over 800 Children’s Advocacy Centers nationwide that have modeled themselves after Cramer’s original vision, 71 in Texas. The Children's Advocacy Center of Hidalgo County is the only center of its kind in Hidalgo and Starr counties.
