Your gift helps turn the despair of abuse
into the promise of hope.
Children’s Center is a not-for-profit organization providing a safe, child friendly setting for the investigation and treatment of child abuse in Southwest Missouri.
As a Child Advocacy Center, we provide three critical services: Forensic Interviews, Sexual Assault Forensic Exams/Child at Risk Exams, and Trauma Focused Therapy.
Our interviews and medical exams are conducted by specially trained professionals. During interviews, a multidisciplinary team of law enforcement, Children’s Division, the juvenile office and medical professionals observe the child, share information, and determine the best course of action to serve the best interest of the child.
Our trauma focused clinical therapy program provides a variety of delivery methods to give children the coping skills to reframe their trauma and power to overcome the abuse.
