The Advocacy Center for the Children of El Paso has been helping El Paso County's victimized children since December of 1996. The Center was created by sixteen concerned El Pasoans which included the District Attorney, County Attorney, Hospital Administrators, Clergymen, Teachers, and Local Businessmen seeing children victimized by severe physical and/or sexual abuse falling through judicial cracks. Children were waiting long periods of time to receive forensic interviews, coordinated investigations, necessary medical and counseling services. They began forming the Center in 1994. The Center opened on December 19, 1996. Our first victim was an abandoned 18-month-old baby girl.

 

  We owe these children safety; we owe them the opportunity to be heard; we owe them the opportunity to heal. 

 

 

 Volunteers are always welcome. Help is greatly appreciated in the offices, with donations received, training preparation, data entry, health fairs, fund raising, and family interaction.
