The Texarkana Children's Advocacy Center operates as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization accredited by the National Children's Alliance, CACTX, CACA and is a United Way member. The TCAC was founded in 1996 at the request of local law enforcement and prosecutors to bring the team approach together for child abuse cases.

These professional services are provided by forensic interviewers, therapists and advocates in a child-friendly environment through a coordinated team approach with local law enforcement, District Attorneys, CPS, etc.
