Mission Statement

CARE House of Oakland County is a leading resource in the prevention of child abuse and neglect and the protection of children through advocacy, education, intervention, reseach and treament, in collaboration with the community.

Description

CARE House, aka Child Abuse and Neglect Council, was established 30 years ago by a collation of communities groups, including the prosecutor, police agencies, the Junior League of Birmngham to develop program to abate the growing issues of child abuse amd neglect. About 15 years ago the agency became an "child advocacy" center, where children alleged victimes of sexual or severe physical abuse or sexual assault are interviewed by a forensic interviewer while police, prosecutor, and protective services observe. The multi-discipline approach reduces the traumatization of children who have experienced these events.

CARE House presents various educational programs to the community in an effort to educate the community on its responsibility to protect children. Recently the agency added Stewards of Children program to its educational aspect.

Another program is our participation in the Healthy Start collaborative to provide support for new mothers for up to five years. We also hold parent education classes using the Nuuring Parent model.

In additional we are an affiliated program with National CASA to provide court advocacy for children under jurisdiction of the 6th Circuit Court Family Division for negelct and abuse .
