Advocacy Center for Crime Victims & Children

From Victims to Survivors

Professional staff provide hope and healing to all survivors of sexual assault and violent crimes in six Central Texas counties. The Advocacy Center is one agency with three programs. The Victims Center offers case management, unlimited counseling sessions, 24/7 crisis hotline and specially-trained, sexual assault nurse examiners who perform exams at Waco hospitals. The Children’s Advocacy Center is a safe place for children to tell their story. The Advocacy Center provides forensic interviews and medical examinations for children under 18 by the two doctors on staff: Medical Director Dr. Ann Sims and Child Sexual Abuse Examiner Dr. Soo Battle. Prevention and Education staff give presentations at area schools and organizations to help change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that may lead to sexual violence. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram and help victims become survivors. @AdvocacyWaco and
