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

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.

Guidelines for Volunteers:

If volunteers are performing duties at the Center, they will be required to pass a background check and fill out a confidentiality form. Volunteers will not be in contact with any children at the Center. Finally, we prefer volunteers to be 18 and older due to the nature of work we do at the Children's Center.

If volunteers are performing duties through committee work, they will be required to attend planning meetings and may not be required to pass a background check or confidentiality form as it depends on what committee they are volunteering for.

 

Internships are available on a case by case basis.
