Patsy's House Celebrates 20 Years Advocacy Abused Children

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Patsy's House is celebrating their 20th Anniversary after two decades of work as one the top advocacy groups for abused children in Wichita Falls. 

Since their beginning in Wichita Falls on Denver Street in 1996, the non-profit organization has grown and expanded its advocacy outreach to multiple other Texas towns and communities in four counties; Archer, Clay, Montague and Wichita. The company also provides service to Baylor, Foard, Hardeman, Wilbarger, and Young counties.

"Our goal has been the fight against child abuse to bring our community together. Law enforcement, CPS, DA's office, all of our partner agencies work as a team to give the child a voice," said Denise Roberts, Executive Director for Patsy's House. 

According to Roberts, Patsy's House provides victims with digitally recorded professional forensic interviews, information and referral from a trained social worker. They also offer professional counseling for child victims and their non-offending family members. Roberts said that the mission for the next two decades remains the same. 

"Of course we would love for child abuse to be wiped out and for us to be out of a job tomorrow, but we know that won't happen. Our goal is to bring awareness and education for the children to have a voice, to be able to say no, and to go and have someone to tell. We want them to be educated enough to do that. We want the same for our community; for them to be able to know what to look for and how to report it, if there is something going on," said Roberts. 

Patsy's House will host an open house on Thursday, November 17 from 4-7 pm with key visionaries for the non profit being honored at 5:30 pm. Roberts said if you think a child is being abused there's still a chance for you to help make a difference by reporting the abuse to the proper authorities.
