Recognized throughout the United States as a leading children’s advocacy center, The Children’s Assessment offers an array of services to children whose lives have been disrupted by child sexual abuse. A detailed interview of the child to safely record their statements and eliminate the need to re-tell their painful experience is one of the first services provided by CAC. Spindletop funded the original CAC Forensic Interviewing System in the early 1990’s, and with the advent of the digital age, Spindletop recognized the need for advanced technology. In 2005, $300,000 was donated to fund CAC’s state of the art forensic interviewing digital conversion project, and three years later in 2008, Spindletop donated an additional $150,000 for CAC’s medical clinic digital conversion. An average of 350-425 interviews each month are being processed at CAC.
Most recently, in 2018, $100,000 was donated to sponsor the Spindletop Family Gathering Room, where families unite for special occasions, all supervised by CAC staff.
