Mission Statement & Philosophy
Our Mission is to provide individualized, diagnostic, therapeutic, and educational services for the emotional and behavioral problems children exhibit in the home, school and community; provide integrated community based psychiatric and support services that are child centered, family driven and culturally competent; to advocate for preventative and educational services from community resources and to promote and/or develop other specialized services for children with serious mental, emotional and behavioral disorders and their families
Our Vision is that children will have a future that is bright and full of hope.
Our Purpose is to create a lifetime of understanding and hope with children and families.
Our Philosophy is based on equality and engagement with the children and families we serve. The Child Center is a family-based service organization. Family involvement, as equal partners, is the very foundation of all treatment services we provide. Our experience of serving children since 1971 has shown us that treatment is more effective when the entire family is involved in learning more about the problems they are facing and are a part of finding solutions based on the strengths of their family. Families in all of our programs participate in family therapy. Parent training and education classes are also available. Parents are involved in determining what treatment goals are priorities for them in family therapy and in their child’s treatment.
The Child Center’s primary orientation is based on the Family System’s Model. We have successfully incorporated Collaborative Problem Solving model, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Structural, Strategic, Contextual, Rational Emotive, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic and Behavioral child and parent interventions in a Brief therapy model.
