From Victims to Victors
Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children provides hope and healing to survivors of sexual assault and other violent crimes in six Central Texas counties through case management, unlimited counseling sessions and a 24/7 crisis hotline. Volunteer advocates answer the hotline after regular business hours and accompany sexual assault survivors to both Waco hospitals where they stay with that person during the entire exam. Sexual assault forensic examiners perform exams at both Waco hospitals. Forensic interviews and medical exams are provided to children under 18 that have been abused, if abuse is suspected or if they have witnessed a crime. Prevention and Education staff give presentations at schools, universities and other youth-based and community organizations to change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that may lead to the perpetration of sexual violence. Prevention programming seeks to help youth develop socially and personally by facilitating discussions and activities on topics that encourage non-academic development such as empathy, respect, healthy relationships, emotions and conflict resolution. All services are free. The Advocacy Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that relies on the charitable donations of others to serve the community. Without your help, they could not continue to bring hope and healing to victims of violent crimes. All donations stay here and are used by the Advocacy Center to directly impact the Central Texas area. Your donation can directly impact the hurting adults and children in this community by providing them with a safe and constructive environment that is the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children. ACCVC relies on volunteers and donors who are willing to share their time, experience and finances to serve their community. Without the help of involved community members, they could not sustain their efforts and continue to help their neighbors who have been victims of crimes. Please join them with your support of Waco Mardi Gras Ball, Designer Purse Bingo, Pinwheels for Prevention and PAVE (their monthly give campaign).
