Our mission is to restore dignity, hope, and trust to children traumatized by abuse and neglect.

As the only Children’s Advocacy Center in Bexar County, we provide expert care and specialized services to children and teenagers who have been traumatized by abuse, neglect, or sexual abuse.

ChildSafe offers a safe, child-friendly atmosphere where a talented team of mental health professionals, child protective services, and law enforcement agencies work together to coordinate strategies and care plans which are sensitive to the needs of each individual child and family.

Our clients receive an array of evidence-based, trauma-focused services, therapy, extended care, and individual case management to ensure that the journey toward healing is not overwhelming.

ChildSafe strives to create an environment that encourages our clients to feel as though they are part of a caring community of support.

Follow-up services are also offered until the child reaches adulthood. In short, ChildSafe endeavors to facilitate healing at every step of the way.
