Children’s Center is a private, non-profit child abuse intervention center accredited by the National Children’s Alliance. Children are referred to us by law enforcement agencies, child protective workers, parents, teachers, health care providers, and others concerned for their welfare.
There are many ways to help ensure that suspected victims of abuse receive the compassion and care they need. As a supporter, your impact is key to spreading the prevention message. Thank you for believing that all children deserve to be safe, healthy, and happy.
