Fulton family hopes evidence results in trial

The Vidor Police Explorers were recently joined at one of their meetings by a representative of The Garth House of Beaumont. The young men and women of the Police Explorer Troop had a wonderful opportunity to learn about how

 

The Garth House works with young children to help them describe physical and sexual abuse that they have suffered. They also learned how The Garth House works with many local law enforcement agencies and with the State of Texas Child Protective Services Department in assisting those agencies in their own investigation into child physical or sexual abuse. The explorers also learned about how The Garth House is invaluable to our community by providing counseling to the young victims and the non-offending family members. Most importantly, they learned that The Garth House is an independent organization, and in being so, The Garth House must rely on the generosity of others to provide all of those valuable services to our community.
