The Paluxy River Volunteer Program strengthens services, through volunteer resources, to abused children and their families in Hood, Erath, and Somervell Counties.
Family Care Volunteer
When children are brought to the Paluxy River Children’s Advocacy Center (PRCAC) to receive a forensic interview, Family Care volunteers (FC’s) welcome these child clients and their non-offending family members to our center. FC’s appropriately interact with families to provide comfort and support while maintaining client confidentiality. FC’s provide supervision for clients of the PRCAC in a fun, child friendly setting. The primary goal of the FC is to help make our child clients feel welcome and comfortable while visiting our agency. FC shifts are usually three to four hours in length and are during the week (Monday through Friday), between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm. Interested individuals must submit a completed Volunteer Application Packet and submit to a criminal background check. Our screening process includes an interview and file review before acceptance into the FC program.
Paluxy Partners provide a variety of support for our agency including: staffing our agency information booth at health fairs, assisting with Child Abuse Prevention Month activities during April, helping with fundraisers (Heroes with Handbags), assisting with our annual Christmas for Children party, and providing support at other activities involving the agency. Paluxy Partners sign up for events and activities throughout the year. Events can be during the week, after hours, and on weekends, depending on the specific activity. All individuals interested in serving as a Paluxy Partner must submit a completed Volunteer Application Packet and submit to a criminal background check. Our screening process includes an interview and file review before acceptance into the Paluxy Partners program.
