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.

ENDING CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE AFTER DISCLOSURE

  • A children’s advocacy center is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, child advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child sex abuse cases.
  • The primary goal of all National Children’s Alliance (NCA) children’s advocacy centers are to ensure that children disclosing abuse are not further victimized by the intervention systems design to protect them.

  • The NCA strongly believes that the combined professional wisdom and skill of the multidisciplinary team approach results in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective child- and family-focused system response possible.
