Reducing the trauma
to child abuse survivors
The Child Center, Child Advocacy Center of Northeast Missouri, serves child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and children who witness violence.
Since opening our doors in 2000, our staff and community partners have been the front-line responders to reports of child abuse. Our organization exists to protect children, heal families and prevent abuse.
The primary goal of The Child Center is to ensure that children disclosing abuse are not further victimized by the intervention systems designed to protect them. Services offered include forensic interviews, children and family advocacy, mental health therapy, and school and community-based prevention education programs.
How we help
The Child Center is here to allow children to share their experience of abuse or neglect in a child-friendly and non-threatening environment. At The Child Center, we operate by what we call the Child First Doctrine; meaning that the child and their well-being is our first priority.
How You Can help
Investing in The Child Center will transform the lives of children and families by providing hope and healing in their times of need. We invite you to support our mission of responding to child abuse to reduce trauma to children and their families.
