Help us brighten the future of abused children in Southwest Missouri

Making A Difference…

Children’s Center is a not-for-profit organization providing a safe, child friendly setting for the investigation of child abuse in Southwest Missouri.  The allegations that bring children to our center include sexual and/or physical abuse, living in a drug-endangered environment, neglect,  exploitation through the Internet or child pornography,  and/or witnessing a serious crime.

As a child advocacy center, we provide children two critical services – Forensic Interviews and Sexual Assault Forensic Exams by trained professionals.  Behind the scenes at our center, a multidisciplinary team of law enforcement, Children’s Division, the juvenile office and medical professionals observe the interview, share information, discuss outcomes and determine a course of action that best serves the interest of the child.

We are proud of the work we do and invite you to get involved.
