Reporting Abuse

 

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

330.661.0800.

 

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. 





Outreach

Community Outreach

By promoting safety, awareness and dialogue, we can prevent abuse from happening in the first place and help keep our children safe.

Each year the Children's Center of Medina County (CCMC) participates in several community events in Medina County.

Wear Blue

Held in April to give a voice to the children who are too young to speak for themselves and also to remember the children who we have lost because of child abuse. WearBlue is a statewide awareness campaign that takes place on the second Wednesday of every April, Child Abuse Prevention Month.   Ohioans are encouraged to wear blue that day - to work, to school, to a community event - to show support for preventing child abuse and neglect. 

 

 
 
 
 
Community Pinwheel Walk to Prevent Child Abuse
 
Participants walked with pinwheels to St Francis Xavier to plant the pinwheels before returning back to the historic square. Each pinwheel represented one of the 473 reported and investigated child abuse case in Medina County in 2014.  The entire walk was just under one mile and donated refreshments and mini pinwheels were given to each person that attended the event. 
We had a great turnout at Medina Square! Along with a large number of community residents, several county officials supported us as well as members of the Optimist Club of Brunswick and members of Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.)  
St Francis Xavier generously displayed the pinwheel garden for the remaining days in April.
You may ask why the blue and silver pinwheel? We use them as a symbol of child abuse awareness and prevention because it represents the childhood we want every child to experience. The Children’s Center truly believes that every child deserves a fun, bright, creative and extraordinary life, as well as a healthy and safe one.
