“The Ellis County Commissioners’ Court Approve $50,000 to the

Ellis County Children’s Advocacy Clinic”


On Tuesday, January 12th, The Ellis County Commissioners’ Court approved the authorization of a payment in the amount of $50,000 to the Ellis County Children’s Advocacy Clinic (ECCAC). 

 

In December of 2019, the Commissioners’ Court approved a public-private partnership between Ellis County and the ECCAC to provide critical community services. The mission of ECCAC is to provide justice, hope, and healing to children and their families through a collaborative response towards child abuse, which includes awareness, prevention, and protection. Their offices work with Police Departments, Child Protective Services, and the County and District Attorney’s Office to provide a developmentally sensitive, legally sound and culturally competent forensic interview of possible child victims and/or witnesses. 


“This public-private partnership has proven itself crucial to serving the residents of our community throughout the high stress year of 2020. As a Commissioners’ Court, we proudly continue to invest in the mental health, support, and well-being of our Ellis County families and children.” - Ellis County Judge Todd Little
