Mission Statement

To meet the needs of children and families in our community by providing a community-based, child-focused center that facilitates a compassionate, multidisciplinary approach to the prevention, treatment, identification, investigation, and prosecution of child abuse.

Description

Three basic beliefs: 1. The intervention system must be sensitive to the needs of abused children and their families and meet their needs by respecting the uniqueness of each child and family. 2. Child abuse is a community problem. No single agency, individual, or discipline alone has the necessary skills, knowledge or resources to provide the assistance needed by children and families that have been affected by abuse. 3. The combined wisdom and professional knowledge of multidisciplinary team members from child protective services, law enforcement, prosecution, adult and juvenile probation, medical, public and mental health, schools and victim advocacy will result in a more complete understanding of case issues and help facilitate the most effective response possible.
