Quarter Auction to Benefit Alliance For Children

Jul 13, 2015 03:20PM ● Published by Kevin

Women, Wealth & Wellness of DFW (Formerly Wine, Women & Wealth) - ARLINGTON, TX and Texas Doll Auctions are hosting a Quarter Auction to benefit Alliance For Children. The event will take place Wednesday, July 15, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at The Admiral Hotel at 1507 N. Watson Road in Arlington. 

The mission of Alliance for Children is to protect children of Tarrant County from child abuse through teamed investigations, healing services and community information.

As Tarrant County's Children Advocacy Center, Alliance For Children collaborates with 16 local law enforcement agencies, Child Protective Services, Cook Children's Medical Center and the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office. As a result of this collaboration, investigators are more cohesive, cases are stronger for prosecution, and children and their protective caregivers are more likely to benefit from available healing services.

The model of the Children’s Advocacy Center was created to bring together all agencies charged with investigating child abuse. In the Fort Worth Center, for example, there are two full units from Fort Worth Police Department who are considered Crimes Against Children detectives. The agency also houses three Child Protective Services Units in that building. 

There are bi-weekly case staffing meetings that are coordinated by Alliance For Children staff to discuss current cases. Those meetings are also attended by the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office and Cook Children’s CARE Team staff. CARE Team is the child abuse response team at Cook’s and do the medical component of these investigations.


Last year there were 6,097 confirmed cases of abuse in Tarrant County. 

"That is the highest in the State of Texas," said Kim Rocha. "Alliance For Children worked with over 2,300 of those children to provide either investigative or healing services. We also do prevention education as we firmly believe that child sexual abuse is preventable. Last year we trained over 30,000 adults and children in our prevention curriculums."


A preview of the auction items and vendors will take place from 6:30 to 7 p.m. The auction starts at 7.

"While we always appreciate monetary donations, the ultimate goal for us is to raise awareness of the issue of child abuse in our community," Rocha said. "The more we talk about this difficult issue the more awareness is raised."

For more information, contact Moinca at 817-721-2589, and visit

Later this year, on Thursday, Oct. 29, Alliance For Children will hold its 16th Annual Great Conversation Dinner featuring special guest Elizabeth Smart.
