Every Child. Every Service. Every Effort.
Childrenz Haven is the Polk County Children's Advocacy Center.
Each year, thousands of Texas children suffer from abuse and neglect. More often than not, they are victimized by the adults they love and rely on to protect them.
In the past, our criminal justice system required multiple interviews by each agency with victimized children, often creating additional pain. Children's Advocacy Centers of Texas worked with the civil and criminal justice systems to make a change.
We are 1 of 71 Texas Children's Advocacy Centers providing a safe space for children and nonoffending caregivers through the investigative, legal, and healing process . We collaborate with law enforcement, CPS, and the prosecutors by coordinating joint investigations and facilitating case reviews on pending cases so that no child’s case falls through the cracks.
