We believe that no child who has suffered abuse should be subjected to further trauma from the investigation, protection and justice systems. We believe that we can set children on a path towards healing by providing a child-focused, trauma-informed, multi-disciplinary team approach to these difficult investigations and by providing the critical services children need as they go through the investigation. We opened our doors 20 years ago and today we serve over 250 children from Lamar and Red River Counties each year.
The Sweetheart Soiree celebrates the hope, healing, and justice that can happen when we all come together to protect our children and raises funds and awareness for the Children’s Advocacy Center of Paris. This year's event took place at the Love Civic Center on Saturday, February 15th, 2020 and included complimentary beer and wine, dinner, both a live and silent auction, and dance party with entertainment by Chinatown.
