Five years ago, we embarked on a journey to ensure that no abused child in Collin County ever goes without the services they need to heal. After analyzing multitudes of data, we learned that the child population in Collin County is projected to triple over the next 25 years, and we need to be prepared to serve three times as many children as we serve today.

The work we do at the Center is transformative, both for our children and for our community. With the miraculous gifts we have received, we now have the opportunity to carry that transformation far into the future.

NEW SITE LOCATION

The project team for the new facility is comprised of KDC Real Estate Development and Investments, Alliance Architects, and Spring Valley Construction Company. The new facility will be named The Speese Campus in honor of the generous lead gift and long-term support of the Center by Carolyn and Mark Speese. Construction is planned to begin July 1, 2021, with the facility to be fully operational by Fall 2022. The new 40,000 square foot advocacy center will be located in McKinney at Heritage Drive and Harroun Avenue.

THE NEED

By 2050, Collin County’s population is expected to surpass more than 3.8 million residents, 3x the current population.

The child population in Collin County is expected to increase 280% by 2050

Our current facility will reach capacity by 2023, less than two years from now.

According to the National Institutes of Health, the economic impact of untreated child abuse per child is over $280,000.
Based upon the number of children we served in 2019 alone, the cost savings to the community for those children is over $680 Million.

I am proud of the success of this campaign to build another full-service center. Every day as we secure justice for these precious children, I see up close and personal the difference the Center makes in their lives. It is a safe place where traumatized, abused children learn how to deal with and heal from that trauma, while we seek justice on their behalf.

– Greg Willis, Collin County District Attorney

This new facility means that no abused child who needs services will ever be turned away, no matter how large Collin County grows. It means that children won't have to travel hours to receive the help they need after suffering the trauma of abuse. It means that these children who come to our Center, broken and frightened, will have a new future, bright with promise and hop

– Lynne McLean, CEO of Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County

We are excited to announce we have exceeded our need of $10 Million for our Capital Campaign.
