About Children's Center

Children’s Center of Southwest Missouri, a not-for-profit child advocacy center headquartered in Joplin, Missouri has been providing victim assistance services since May 5, 1997 to sexually abused and/or physically abused children, ages birth through 17, and their families. As a child advocacy center (CAC), Children’s Center provides many benefits, both to victims and families as well as the community as a whole. For victims and their families the benefits of a CAC are readily apparent: consistent and prompt follow-up to abuse reports; crisis intervention; consistent and compassionate support for the child and family; referrals to professionals with expertise in specialized fields; dramatically fewer victim interviews; and increased successful prosecutions.
