Prevention & Education

Children’s Center supports school districts, law enforcement agencies, child protective workers, health care providers, and other professionals who work with youth to recognize and respond skillfully when concerns of abuse arise.

Our teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, forensic interviewers, mental health providers, educators, and trained volunteers are available to provide presentations, training, and consultations to any group in Clackamas County.

In partnership with The Ford Family Foundation's Protect Our Children statewide initiative, Children's Center is leading the charge to prevent child sexual abuse in Clackamas County by offering Darkness to Light’s research-informed Stewards of Children® child sexual abuse prevention training.

Children's Centers offers a number of free downloadable resources suitable for supportive and caring adults in identifying and responding effectively to abusive behavior. We also provide useful links to external organizations that specialize in raising awareness and preventing child abuse.
