Roger Williamson, owner of Williamson Foundation Repair which has served the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for over 30 years and has become one of the most trusted names in foundation repair services; is always looking for ways to give back to the community. “There is nothing more important to me than giving every child an opportunity to feel safe and have an opportunity to pursue their dreams in life” states Williamson. “The Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County is at the forefront of this battle.”
On April 6, 2018, the State of Texas kicked off Child Abuse Awareness Month with Go Blue Day where thousands of Texans wore blue, the official color of prevention, to show their support for children. This year, several individuals and organizations in Rockwall County submitted creative photos to the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County for a contest to not only showcase their support for this great cause, but also to win tickets to upcoming events with the Advocacy Center.
A children’s advocacy center is a non-profit agency that provides a multi-agency coordinated approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child sexual and physical abuse.
Prior to the existence of child advocacy centers, children suffering from abuse and neglect often endured repetitive interviews due to lack of coordination between investigating agencies. Investigating agencies frequently duplicated efforts and complicated the process for victims and their families, increasing the trauma associated with reporting the abuse and jeopardizing the opportunity for successful outcomes in child abuse cases.
The multi-agency approach to investigating allegations of child abuse and to protecting children begins with the referral. Cases are referred to a children’s advocacy center by either a local law enforcement agency or Child Protective Services (CPS). Forensic interviews are conducted at the children’s advocacy center in an age appropriate room by trained professionals, who seek to minimize the number of interviews for children and to enhance evidence collection through the use of an unbiased and non-suggestive interview protocol. Medical exams are conducted by specially trained practitioners. Therapy and family assistance programs also are provided to clients and non-offending family members to help them understand their rights as crime victims and to assist them in accessing other resources in the community.
