Our Mission

The Center’s mission is to ensure that all children (particularly disadvantaged children) are given the opportunity to mature and develop within a family free of maltreatment, and a community that nurtures and protects them from violence. Prevention, education and direct services intervention are the focal points of the Center’s approach for working with vulnerable children and their families. In the past (1987 thru 2012), specific programs have focused on therapeutic services for abused and neglected children, youth development, family support services, parent education skills building groups, and professional training.
