Scotty's House is the Child Advocacy Center of the Brazos Valley. Founded in 1995, it is our mission to provide safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse through professional assessment, counseling and education in a compassionate and collaborative approach.
Scotty's House opened in 1995 as a non-profit organization that provides a child friendly environment for its child clients. Children are referred to Scotty's House by law enforcement officials and Child Protective Services investigators. Scotty's House is a neutral entity, making no recommendations in any case. It simply provides a supportive and nurturing environment in which a child victim can interact with the necessary agencies. At Scotty' House, the child comes first.
Scotty's House was named for Scotty, son of Pediatrician Kathleen Burford. In March of 1982, seven months after being abducted from his daycare center, four-year-old Scotty was shot to death by his father, Dr. Phillip Linerode, as an FBI agent closed in to recover the abducted child. Linerode then turned the gun on himself.
Scotty's House is dedicated to the memory of Scotty, and all children who have suffered sexual or physical abuse.
