  • The Beginning

    In 2007, two prominent Texas businesswomen, Diane Allbaugh and Jan Bullock, spearheaded e­fforts to raise funds to open the Texas Regional Office of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to address incidences of missing and exploited children in our state. It is well documented that Texas has its unique challenges in combatting child abductions and child sex trafficking.

  • Prevention Education

    NCMEC Texas provides prevention education to children, families, and schools, and technical assistance, training, and resources to law enforcement and child welfare professionals. The Texas office has educated more than 200,000 children, 10,000 law enforcement and child welfare professionals, and countless number of community members.

  • Our Heart

    The Texas office protects children in record numbers because of Allbaugh and Bullock's galvanizing persistence and commitment. In that spirit, we created the Texas Women for Children (TWC) because we believe every child deserves a safe childhood. The TWC is an opportunity for like-minded women, deeply committed to this mission, to come together to expand awareness and determine which programs its privately-raised funds will support. Through the application of these funds, the TWC brings our organization's mission directly into the community, helping to serve the children most in need.
