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.


The mission of the Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center is to advocate for and provide services to children and families when there are allegations of abuse and neglect throughout the investigation, prosecution, treatment, and prevention of child abuse, and to reduce the trauma to children by coordinating a multi-disciplinary approach.


To build a future where all children are free from sexual abuse.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

TF-CBT is an approach for children and adolescents who are experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events. Children and parents learn new skills to help process thoughts and feelings related to traumatic life events; manage and resolve distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related traumatic life events; and enhance safety, growth, parenting skills, and family communication.

Play Therapy

Play therapy differs from regular play in that the therapist helps children to address and resolve their own problems. Play therapy builds on the natural way that children learn about themselves and their relationships in the world around them. Through play therapy, children learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others.

Forensic Interviews

We conduct recorded forensic interviews of children about allegations of abuse and/or neglect. Our interviewers are specially trained to conduct child-friendly, non-leading, and developmentally appropriate interviews. 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.

Family Advocacy

Our family advocates meet with the non-offending caregivers who bring the child or children in for their interview. During family advocacy sessions, the advocate not only explains the CAC process to the caregiver, but also may provide crisis intervention, connect the caregiver with resources, and refer the family to GCCAC or other counseling services.
