The ability to recognize the signs of abuse is critical to a child’s safety. First responders, such as teachers, daycare workers, coaches, and youth ministers are often the only adults who routinely see a child and, thus, have a unique perspective for possible warnings signs.
How adults conduct themselves immediately after suspecting abuse can often strengthen or compromise an official investigation. Consequently, the WCCAC is committed to a large-scale effort to educate the public on better ways to identify victims and more appropriate ways to obtain the information necessary to report the abuse. Our Outreach Program is designed to provide this critical information to any and all first responders in Williamson County.
The Center offers free educational programs to the community. If your school, civic or philanthropic organization, church group, business, or other group is interested in a presentation, please contact our Outreach Coordinator, Amy Callaway, at (512) 943-3701 or Outreach@wilcocac.org to schedule:
