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.
