Our Mission. Our History.
The mission of the Campbell County Children’s Center is to reduce the traumatization of the child abuse victims and their families by facilitating a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team approach to detection, investigations, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse; and prevent child abuse in our communities.
The History of the Campbell County Children’s Center
The center was founded in 2001 to provide a safe haven for sexually and physically abused children. Instead of being interviewed countless times at different locations, a child can share their experience with one caring and specially trained professional. While the center is not a residential facility, our caring experts also will ensure children will have a safe place to stay.
From the gift of a handmade quilt when they first walk through the doors to the kindness of our staff and volunteers during their visit, children are treated with warmth. Our focus is on the child, not the system. While we are dedicated to delivering comprehensive service to the child abuse victims and their families, our true goal is to comfort and provide understanding to the child, much like the comfort of a familiar quilt.
