We Educate

Education is the answer to ending child abuse.

Prevention Education

In Oklahoma, 1 in 3 girls & 1 in 5 boys will be abused before their 18th birthday.

With more than 25 years of experience providing services to victims of child abuse, The CARE Center is working to end this epidemic by educating children and adults. Through our two abuse prevention education programs, we give adults and children the tools they need to identify and prevent child abuse.

Our Mission

Every child has a future, we educate. Every child has a voice, we listen.

Our Vision

To end child abuse in Oklahoma County.

Community Support

ROAR has been endorsed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Oklahoma supports Erin’s Law, which requires all public schools implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program.

For Adults

Recognizing & Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect is our child abuse education training designed for any adults who work directly with children.

This free program teaches adults how to recognize the signs, symptoms, and risk factors of abuse as well as how to respond to and safely report suspected abuse. Schedule a training at your location, attend a training at The CARE Center, or train online. 

For Children

ROAR is The CARE Center’s child-based education program that teaches children ages 4-8 how to protect themselves from abuse. The interactive and easy to implement lesson is designed to be taught in a classroom or group setting.

Rex and his animal friends take children on journey to find his ROAR, a simple and memorable acronym that teaches children that their bodies are their own and empowers children to stand up against abuse.
