Founded in 1915 with the idea of protecting children and preserving families, this year ACH proudly celebrates 100 years of staying true to this mission. ACH has helped thousands of children and families heal and find hope, but the toll in our community from child abuse and neglect continues to demand our attention.
You can help make a difference in the life of a child by putting your support behind a cause impacting 5,689 kids who were abused or neglected right here in Tarrant County last year—kids who need you to be their advocate. Lend A Hand, our 5th annual community-wide educational event and luncheon, is hosted by ACH Child and Family Services to draw attention to the enormous cost of child abuse and neglect on children and families and our community.
Keynote Speaker: Derek Clark, www.iwillnevergiveup.com

At Lend a Hand, Derek will share how he has defied the odds by helping others and become a successful and inspiring author, speaker, trainer, singer/songwriter, husband and father of four.
