The CACCC exists to aid in the prevention, detection, investigation and treatment of child abuse.
Our interagency partners through expert team members make it possible for us to help Comal County children every day.
Law enforcement officers and child protective service investigators refer cases to the center as soon as they believe that abuse might have occurred. During a forensic interview, they observe. After the interview, they take a copy of the recorded interview into evidence for later use. Assistant district attorneys observe the interviews as well to determine if sufficient evidence exists to go forward in a case.
Crisis advocates and CACCC Staff and volunteers work to keep the children and families who come to the center comfortable and follow up with families after they leave the center to provide ongoing support and referrals as needed.
