In March of 1999, The Children’s Center of Ohio was incorporated as a Private, not for profit, Treatment Oriented Children’s Residential Center that serves juvenile boys and girls aged 8 to 18. The youth served are those that have been adjudicated by the court system as public, or status offenders, abuse/neglect, or dependent commitments, or from Children’s Services Agencies. The Children’s Center of Ohio, Inc. provides a normalized, open home setting in which an individualized treatment approach is utilized. Emphasis is placed on teaching youth new behaviors and skills, while strengthening and developing healthy relationships.
The mission of The Children’s Center of Ohio is to provide troubled youth and their families a bridge to a valued, responsible, and productive future. To this end, we help each youth find hope, vision, courage, and will to succeed. We provide stability, opportunity, and security. We encourage growth and offer a chance to develop confidence, independence, self esteem, and respect. We teach values, responsibility, and self discipline in an honest, caring environment. We believe in family, work, accountability, education, and responsible behavior. We are a catalyst for change.
Let’s help children reach their full potential and make the world a better place for all.
