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.
DCAC is where a child's journey to healing begins.


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.
