Opportunities for Giving Back

Volunteers, interns, and donors are a vital part of our mission, helping to provide a caring service to child victims of abuse and their non-offending family members. Our volunteers and interns are instrumental in raising awareness about child abuse in northeast Texas, advocating for families and children, and providing overall general support to our Center staff. We're excited and grateful that you are interested in giving back to the children and families we serve.
