Oklahoma Legislators Tour The CARE Center

The CARE Center welcomed Oklahoma County senators and representatives to tour the newly renovated main house. In attendance were Representative Rhonda Baker, Representative Roger Ford, Health and Human Service Committee members Senator AJ Griffin and Senator Adam Pugh and more.

  We were thrilled to show off our campus and discuss our important work serving Oklahoma County children who have experienced abuse. We are committed to making life better for children and recognize the important work of our legislators and state and community leaders.

Have you toured our campus recently? Contact Camden for a tour and to learn about our program and campus improvements.

You don’t want to miss this wonderland event!  This special night celebrates the bravery and courage of our precious children while raising necessary funds for our programs.

The 2017 Brave Ball will feature amazing cuisine and prize pulls and live auctions, and you won’t want to miss the night’s afterhours lounge overlooking the beautiful Oklahoma City skyline.

Buy your tickets today, and secure your seat at our biggest fundraising event of the year. Sponsorship opportunities are also available now.  

Welcome Felicia To Our Team

We recently welcomed our first PSANE (Pediatric Sexual Abuse Nurse Examiner) to the CARE Center team. Felicia Lee brings with her five years of experience in nursing and pediatrics at OU Children’s Hospital. She is the CARE Center’s first PSANE because the need for medical exams has surpassed the previous nurse position.

Medical exams are a vital part of the healing process for victims of child abuse. After a child discloses abuse, a medical exam is most often the next step. It provides peace of mind for both the child and the caregiver to hear a professional confirm that the child’s body is okay, and there will not be any long-term physical effects from the abuse.
