The mission of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues. The only agency of its kind in Dallas County, DCAC reduces the re-victimization of the child, removes barriers to investigation and treatment, and enhances criminal prosecution with its distinctive multidisciplinary and united approach to child abuse cases. DCAC works in agreement with public and private agencies including Dallas law enforcement, Child Protective Services, the District Attorney’s Office, and Children’s Medical Center (REACH Clinic) to improve child abuse cases in Dallas County.

DSF members assist DCAC by serving as room monitors at the annual Crimes Against Children Conference, providing salad and dessert to accompany dinner every Tuesday for counseling clients, providing birthday bags for child victims of crime and assisting with the DCAC Holiday of Hope.

(A division of Juliette Fowler Communities)

The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities is more than a shelter. It is a home for young women who have suffered abuse or neglect or who have been in foster care. These women need additional assistance before they are are ready to launch into successful adulthood. This strength-based program mentors up to 12 young women at a time for up to 24 months to instill life skills, provide housing, healthcare, education, career guidance, job training, and skills to live independently. The house is under the supervision of the Program Director and a full-time live-in House Manager.

The DSF volunteers recognize the importance of creating a family-oriented atmosphere for the young women of Ebby House. Twice a month, our volunteers provide delicious home-cooked meals for the girls to enjoy. DSF volunteers also assist with holiday parties, and throw launch parties for program graduates.
