The CARE Center is Oklahoma County’s child advocacy center committed to helping children find their voice and begin to heal after abuse.
When a child experiences abuse, law enforcement or DHS refers to The CARE Center for our victim services of forensic interviews, medical exams, family advocacy, and mental health services.
We work together with our multidisciplinary team of law enforcement investigators, child protective service workers, assistant district attorneys, medical professionals, mental health professionals, and family advocacy personnel on the investigation, treatment, and management of child abuse cases. We are here to ensure the best possible outcome for children, while creating a caring, supportive, and safe environment for the brave children we serve.
In Oklahoma, 1 in 3 girls & 1 in 5 boys will be abused before their 18th birthday.
Every child has a future, we educate. Every child has a voice, we listen.
