What We Do

Our Mission is to nurture abused and neglected children through collaboration, advocacy, treatment, and prevention.

We are a child-oriented facility, which serves as a centralized location for interviewing and examining children who are victims of physical and sexual abuse.
Our main focus is the health and wellness of the child. Members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) help the child and family cope with the abuse and begin the recovery process.

The Children's Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Reporting Abuse


If you suspect a child is being abused, it should be reported to Medina County Job and Family Services (MCJFS) at



If a child is in immediate danger, please call 911.


The longer abuse continues, the greater the potential for serious and long-term emotional and psychological difficulties are for the child. 

Our Story



Located in a renovated single family home on Highland Drive in Medina Ohio, the Children’s Center of Medina County (CCMC) began in 2005 and became operational in 2007. 

Even though there are several Child Advocacy Centers (CAC) in Northeast Ohio, the Children's Center is currently the only CAC in Medina County.  About 100 children throughout Medina County come to the Center each year.  These children who have suffered sexual abuse, physical abuse, or extreme neglect tell their story of abuse to specially trained members of the multidisciplinary team in a child friendly environment.   This team helps the child and non-offending family members cope with the abuse and begin the recovery process sooner and experience more successful treatment outcomes.


Since the Children’s Center opened in 2007, we have nurtured 7,084 children in Medina County through the programs we offer our community. These include the Child Advocacy Center, Community Outreach, Prevention, Human Trafficking and Foster Care Visitation. During this past year, we were able to help 1,897 children and 1,793 adults in Medina County with our programs, passionate staff, volunteers, partners, team members and Board of Directors.  With the support from our donors and team; we will continue helping the community.

The Children's Center is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization relying on donations and grants to provide essential service to our children and families in Medina County.   The CCMC is also an Accredited Member of the National Children’s Alliance (NCA) children’s advocacy centers.  Accreditation assures the community and our partners that we are meeting national standards for delivery of care and services.


The Mission of the Children's Center of Medina County (CCMC) is to nurture abused and neglected children through collaboration, advocacy, treatment, and prevention.
