Since 1991, the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) has provided hope and healing to the most severely abused children in Dallas County. DCAC provides a coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse cases. The only agency of its kind in Dallas County, DCAC removes barriers to treatment and enhances criminal prosecution with public and private agencies including Dallas County law enforcement, Child Protective Services, the District Attorney’s Office, and Children’s Medical Center.
ART for ADVOCACY celebrates the transformative power of art therapy in helping children process trauma and heal emotional scars as a result of abuse. This year’s event will feature a silent auction with works by 100 emerging and established artists as well as a handful of luxury experience packages. Proceeds will support DCAC’s work in improving the lives of abused children in Dallas County and providing national leadership on child abuse issues.
