To stop child abuse, neglect and exploitation as we strengthen our community by advocating for our children through prevention, education and intervention, using a collaborative, multi-disciplinary, child-friendly approach.
WHAT THE CENTER PROVIDES
The Center allows agencies to coordinate child-oriented procedures to protect abused children. The Center provides a place for effective interviews that are sensitive to the child's immediate and future needs while still promoting the flow of information needed to determine if prosecution of an adult is warranted. The immediate care of the child, the interviews necessary to substantiate the abuse and the initiation of mental health procedures are all coordinated under one roof, the Center.
