The mission of Dallas Children's Advocacy Center (DCAC) is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to offer national leadership on child abuse issues. DCAC opened its doors on January 14, 1991, and served 725 alleged child abuse victims from its first location, a renovated, three-story Victorian home on historic Swiss Avenue. In January 2013, DCAC moved to a state-of-the-art, 56,000-square-foot facility following an $11 million capital campaign. Their services and programs include forensic services, therapy, family assistance, and education.
DCAC offers countless volunteer opportunities, from playing with children in the DCAC waiting rooms to organizing their clothes closet to working in the DCAC garden. For a complete list, head here.
Hosted at Dallas Gun Club, Aim for Advocacy raises over $150,000 each year in support of Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. Along with competing in a friendly and challenging 13-station clay-shooting tournament, sponsors and their teams also enjoy a catered lunch, a raffle of luxury recreational items, and a live auction of once-in-a-lifetime experience packages for fishers and hunters.
