Advocate | Volunteer | Fundraise
The Save Jane Society is comprised of members from conscientious households who take a stand for children by raising awareness within their circles about the healing services DCAC provides to the victims of child abuse in Dallas County and their families. Through education, volunteerism, and community awareness, the Save Jane Society serves as an inclusive community of advocates who help expose the realities of trauma caused by child abuse and the hope and justice that prevails at DCAC with the wider community.
Members will receive opportunities for fun, education and engagement throughout the year. To maintain active membership status, we ask members to participate in at least two activities or events per year.

The Save Jane Society was named for DCAC’s campaign of the same name. Save Jane shows that child abuse in Dallas County spans every race, age and neighborhood in a provocative and creative way. Each child is shown with a black bar across their eyes with the statement, “I am Jane Doe.” They are no longer nameless kids, but instead become the kid in your daughter's class, the boy on your son’s soccer team or the girl walking by you at the mall.
Join the Save Jane Society today to help spread awareness in your community about the reality of child abuse and the hope and resilience found at DCAC while helping to fund services for the over 7,300 children and non-offending family members we serve each year.
