Children are referred to Children’s Center by law enforcement agencies, child protective workers, parents, teachers, health care providers, therapists, and others concerned for their welfare.
As a private, non-profit Children’s Advocacy Center, we offer neutral, child-centered abuse and neglect evaluations. The Center works collaboratively as a partner on the Clackamas County Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) with local agencies responsible for intervening when there is concern for child maltreatment.
As the Designated Medical Professional (DMP) for Clackamas County, our primary goal is to provide children and adolescents with comprehensive child abuse assessments in a trauma-informed and child-centered environment. Our team can also connect caregivers and children with services to help keep families healthy, happy, and safe.
