Kaufman Texas, - Located on Washington Street in the City of Kaufman sits a house co-mingled with other local businesses that while mostly going unnoticed, has a tremendous impact on the children of Kaufman County. This unassuming ordinary house is a non-profit organization that coordinates, supports, and participates in an interdisciplinary response to child abuse victims and their families. The victims find a host of caring professionals and community partners dedicated to helping them through their nightmare of abuse and neglect. The Kaufman County Child Advocacy Center provides a safe place for these children to tell their stories and receive the help they need. Inside the walls of this Center, healing can begin and families find the support and resources they need.
