Victim Services Advocacy
The Children's Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County provides support services to victims and their non-offending family members in several different ways. The Victim Services Advocate provides support throughout the prosecution and conviction process and helps the victim and family prepare for trial. These services are intended to meet the emotional, physical, and financial needs of the victim or their family.
What is a Victim Services Advocate?
The Victim Services Advocate helps children and their non-offending family members navigate through the overwhelming process of a child abuse case. From the initial outcry to prosecution and sentencing, the Victim Services Advocate is here to help families understand the process and successfully access essential resources in our community.
Families are referred to our program by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and law enforcement. All victim advocacy services are provided free of charge. These services include:
