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. 

Wish List


For some of the children who come to The Children's Center, this is the first time that they’ve been truly listened to and supported in a way that allows them to move forward to become healthy.

We are helping them make the transition to healing. One of the ways we do that is by providing children with items to take home at the end of their visits.


** Please note that out of respect for the children and families, donations will be accepted by appointment only.

We ask that you contact the Donation Coordinator at donations@MedinaCountyChildrensCenter.org to coordinate a time prior to drop off.

If you need immediate assistance, please contact Melissa Hutchison at 330.764.8891
