ChildSafe Specializing in Care For Abused Children South Texas

ChildSafe has never let us down. You gave me back my son’s wonderful personality. You gave him the strength to say 'I am a survivor, I am not a victim.' Those are the bravest words I’ve ever heard. And ChildSafe made them possible.

ChildSafe Client

All of my questions were answered and I was given information about what steps to take, how to approach the situation, and who I should make a report to. It is also great to know that my daughter and I have support from an agency to help us rise above this situation and how to help others rise above similar situations. Services here exceeded my expectations. Thank you for all your help ChildSafe!
