The Dallas County Child Abuse Prevention Coalition (CAPCO) and its partners hosted a child abuse prevention awareness event Monday, April 10, in the parking lot at Dallas CASA. The event honored the seven children who lost their lives due to abuse or neglect in 2022 and recognized all child welfare agencies and nonprofits serving children and families in need.
The event’s emcee was Miss Texas Averie Bishop. In-N-Out Burger donated lunch for the event. CAPCO agencies include Dallas CASA, the Dallas County Child Welfare Board, Family Compass, TexProtects and many more. In addition to colleagues from Child Protective Services and Child Protective Investigations, the Dallas Police Department’s Child Abuse Squad and the Dallas District Attorney’s Crimes Against Children Division were also invited to the CAPCO event.
