Bexar County’s children’s advocacy center ChildSafe gave the first tour of its brand new $26.5 million Salado Creek campus on Thursday.
The 65,000 square-foot facility will house ChildSafe and partner organizations providing services to children who have been victims of physical and sexual abuse, experienced neglect, or have witnessed a violent crime.
“The new building is going to help us serve more children locally in a moment when the number of children needing services is” not declining, said Kim Abernethy, ChidSafe CEO. “From June 1, 2018, to June 1, 2019, we saw 395,000 [people]. This is a large number that keeps rising every year.”
