Part 1: The Foundation Safety. Security. Truth. Trust. These values are the basis of our work at Alliance For Children, the foundation on which we have built our physical spaces and the morals we live by daily. When a child walks through our doors, they are entering a "home" in the best sense of the word – a place where they can feel safe and secure, where their truth is heard by believing ears, and their case assessed and coordinated by experts whom the child and their protective family can trust. The children’s advocacy center movement began in 1985 in Huntsville, Alabama, with the hope of decreasing trauma, streamlining investigations, and expediting healing services for child abuse victims. With other proactive communities watching, this thoughtful and detailed model soon spread across the nation ensuring all involved local parties, including law enforcement, the Department of Family and Protective Services, medical experts, and the District Attorney’s Office, had a seat at their local table. In 1992, our founders laid the groundwork for Alliance For Children, serving our first child at our Arlington location. We continue that legacy daily in our work at each of our locations throughout Tarrant County. Today, our Board of Directors (which strategically includes members from our partner agencies), alongside our staff and partners, work to bring an end to abuse, to bring justice for child victims, to keep children safe, and to educate the public on how they can prevent child abuse from ever taking place in their communities. As we reflect on serving our first child 30 years ago, we remind ourselves that now more than ever, Tarrant County child victims need us. The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath continue to have disastrous effects on children. Trapped with their abusers, or suffering the stress of isolation or loss of income, child victims suffered immeasurable harm over the last two years. However, there is hope in that darkness. With the help of safe adults, children are speaking up about what has happened to them. Because of their bravery, we continue to serve child abuse victims as we have throughout our 30-year history. Child abuse does not discriminate – it can happen in every community, to every type of family. But through our work, we know child abuse can be prevented. Children can heal. The joys of childhood can be restored. Join us over the coming months as we celebrate 30 years of protecting Tarrant County children. You’ll learn about our history, the why behind the work we do every day, and the values that define us. Join us in The House that Trust Built.
