Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide individualized, diagnostic, therapeutic and educational services for the emotional and behavioral problems children exhibit in the home, school and community; provide integrated community based psychiatric and support services that are child centered, family driven and culturally competent; to advocate for preventative and educational services from community resources and to promote and/or develop other specialized services for children with serious mental, emotional and behavioral disorders and their families.

Agency Philosophy
The Child Center is a family based agency. Family involvement, as equal partners, is the very foundation of all treatment services we provide. Our experience of serving children since 1971 has shown us that treatment is more effective when the entire family is involved in learning more about the problems they are facing and are a part of finding solutions based on the strengths of their family. Families in all of our programs participate in family therapy. Parent training/education groups are also available. Parents are involved in determining what treatment goals are priorities for them in family therapy and in their child's treatment.

The Child Center’s primary orientation is based on the Family System's Model. We have successfully incorporated Collaborative Problem Solving model, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Structural, Strategic, Contextual, Rational Emotive, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic and Behavioral child and parent interventions in a Brief therapy model.
