Let’s Make A Change Together

Every child deserves a chance to live a life free of danger, abuse, fear, and neglect. While you may not have been able to prevent what has happened to them in the past, you can still save a child from the pain of abuse today.

The following are various ways you can support Children’s Advocacy Center of Hidalgo and Starr Counties, giving every child abuse victim hope, healing, and justice. We urge you to help save a child today.

Corporate Giving

No matter how big or small your business is, you can support our community through corporate giving. Our children are the heart of our community, and they represent the key to our future, too. When we invest in children, we invest in our communities.

You can develop corporate consciousness while giving back to your community through your support of our efforts at CACHSC. Build social awareness and employee civic responsibility all while helping the children in our community. Make a difference today in the lives of our children and families. What families need is support, so do your part to keep a child safe today.

Individual Donations

The help your donations represent goes far beyond just monetary assistance. Many of the children we serve are in serious need of countless daily essentials, and your generosity makes a big difference in the lives of the children we serve. Monetary donations are preferred, but you can get involved by making donations for any of the items on our Wish List:

  • Cash donations
  • New children’s clothing
  • New undergarments and socks
  • New school backpacks and supplies
  • New toys in original packaging
  • New packages of diapers/wipes
  • New children’s books and coloring books
  • Gift cards from local stores

A Community Coming Together

The victims of child abuse that CACHSC has helped have each benefited substantially from the generous donations and sponsorships from selfless individuals and our local business community. Our work, organization, and services are made possible by the kindness and compassion of people like you. We sincerely thank each and every individual and business that’s helped us in our efforts to save countless victims of abuse and helped our organization grow.
