Virginia’s House, Young and Stephens County's Family Resource Center, is dedicated to the protection and healing of child abuse victims. For over 20 years, we have helped many children and families on the road to healing from the trauma of physical abuse, sexual abuse or from witnessing a violent crime.
The mission of Virginia’s House is to meet the needs of abused, neglected and traumatized children through programs of prevention, advocacy and support.
Virginia’s House is the only Young, Stephens and Jack County non-profit organization involved directly in the protection from child abuse through coordinated and teamed investigations with law enforcement, Child Protective Services, Cook Children’s Medical Center, the District Attorney’s Office and the County Attorney’s Office.
Did you know that all adults are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse? You may be wondering what that means exactly; according to the Texas Family Code (Ch 261), it is required that ANYONE “having cause to believe that a child’s physical, mental health or welfare has been or may be adversely affected by abuse or neglect” MUST report the case immediately. Failure to report child abuse is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days and/or a fine up to $2000.
