The mission of the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center (DCAC) is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues.


2016 marks the 25th Anniversary of DCAC's opening! Thank you to the Dallas community for making DCAC a place of justice and hope for children since 1991. 


Every adult in the state of Texas is required to make a report when child abuse is suspected. You do not have to investigate or be certain that abuse has occurred - you only have to suspect.

Call 911 or the Child Abuse Hotline at 1.800. 252.5400 or visit to make a report online.
