The Bluebonnet Children’s Advocacy Center is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that successfully works on behalf of child victims of abuse (ages birth to 18) through two advocacy programs: The Bluebonnet Children’s Advocacy Center and Tri-County CASA.
The Bluebonnet Children’s Advocacy Center dedicated to alleviating the trauma placed on children when faced with abuse. Services are provided to children, their families, and Investigative Agencies who are involved in an investigation of child abuse.
The Bluebonnet Children’s Advocacy Center is one of 70 CAC’s across the state dedicated to alleviating the added trauma of a child abuse investigation on children who have already suffered at the hands of their abuser.
Tri-County CASA recruits, trains and supervises volunteers to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in foster care. CASA volunteers advocate in the court system to insure safe, timely and permanent placement of the children in foster care. Tri-County CASA volunteers are assigned as a Friend of the Court for the child by the Presiding Judge.
Both programs, distinct as they are, strive to provide a voice for abused and neglected children referred to the organization. Solid relationships with local social service agencies, extensive volunteer support, a keen awareness of children’s needs and responsible management have made it possible for Bluebonnet Children’s Center to exist.
The small victims of our community need big friends. Are you willing to help make a difference?
