BOARD OF DIRECTORS

From its conception in 1997 and over the course of the next three years, the primary goal of the
Gonzales Regional Children’s Advocacy Center was to provide local and timely recognition of child
abuse and treatment of victims while minimizing the trauma they experienced.  The charter members
joined forces with local team members from various disciplines across Gonzales County including
CPS, local law enforcement, the District Attorney’s Office and medical and mental health professionals.

In 2001, the Center was accepted as an Operating Member of the Children’s Advocacy Centers of
Texas, Inc. (CACTX).  In December of 2001, the Center adopted the name “Norma’s House” as the
new business name in recognition of the contributions of a Charter Member of the Board of Directors,
Norma Ehrig.  It became a member of the National Children’s Alliance in 2002.

Today, Norma’s House continues to provide direct services to children and non-offending family
members within the community.  Every year approximately 280 children and their families enter our
doors for the investigation of child abuse.  Client services and outreach programs continue to
increase.  Our multi-disciplinary team is an effective, solid force that works as a cohesive assault
against child abuse.  

On September 1, 2013, Lavaca County was added to our service area.
