​​The Children's Recovery Center

is  the place families turn when

the unthinkable happens.

One-in-four girls  and one-in six boys

will be sexually abused

before the age of 18.  


Most children will never tell a soul.

They're too afraid. Too traumatized.​ 

 The Children's Recovery Center  helps

victims become survivors.   

We  protect children and help them heal.
