Compassion Accountability Respect Excellence
These are the values we live by. At Children’s Center, WE CARE — for the children and families we serve, for ourselves, for each other, and for our community.
We have been at the forefront of our community’s compassionate response to child abuse and neglect since 2002. Our child-focused intervention and recovery strategies are grounded in trauma-informed care for children when there are concerns of physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, drug endangerment, or a child has witnessed domestic violence. At Children’s Center, kids can feel safe to share their experiences and know that they will be heard. Our holistic approach provides caregivers with support and resources to help children begin their healing journey. Nationally accredited Children’s Center is also a leader in local efforts to keep children safe, adopting a model of strategic outreach and education focused on child abuse prevention. We invite you to join us in making a positive impact in the lives of kids in our community.
