Alliance for Children

Every child deserves a nurturing family and safe environment to experience the magic of childhood and grow into a healthy and productive adult. Yet child abuse is one of our nation’s most serious public health problems and threatens the safety of our community.

In Tarrant County alone, 6,203 children were victims of child abuse or neglect last year.

Alliance For Children stands in the community as the only non-profit directly involved in the investigation of child abuse through teamed investigations, healing services and community education. This organization seeks to minimize trauma for victims of abuse by facilitating a multidisciplinary team approach to investigations and ensuring children and their caregivers are set on a path to healing by providing access to crucial services at no cost to families. Alliance For Children firmly believes child abuse is preventable, but it takes all of our efforts to ensure the safety of children.

April 2021 is designated as National Child Abuse Prevention Month with the hope that our community will be empowered in the fight against child abuse, become more aware of statistics and feel equipped with knowledge to help create an environment where children thrive.
