Child Abuse Hotline: 1-800-252-5400

On Saturday, March 25, 2017 10 - 1 in Buddy Holly Recreation Park, North University and Cesar Chavez Drive hundreds gathered to help us STAND against child abuse.  Booths were open from 10 to 12 and then at noon was the official Stand Up for Kids where we held signs with the age and gender of each of the 759 children who came throught the center in 2016 for child abuse services.  This free family event featured Live entertainment, community agency booths,  motocycle display, bounce houses, free hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, balloon animals, face painting and more.

Stand Up 4 Kids was created in 2008 to show support for the children who come to the Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains.  

This moving and fun family event pays tribute by bringing together the entire community to stand in mass in Miller Park, South Loop 289 and Memphis. Each person present holds a hand sign that displays the age and gender of an actual child who received services through the center the previous year.  

In 2008 around 50 supporters gathered for the inaugural Stand Up 4 Kids in Kastman Park. Since that date, the event has continued to grow in both community support and activities for the entire family.  

Suddenlink joined the Stand Up 4 Kids in 2009 as the event sponsor. The team at Suddenlink has become an important and treasured part of the Children's Advocacy Center family. The team members have participated in all Stand Up 4 Kids events as well as the center's Big Game Blowout, Honor Thy Children's Awards Luncheon, and have provided hands-on help with numerous projects around the center.

Fox34 joined the event in 2011 and has helped spread community awareness and grow this moving event.
