Child Safe of Central Missouri, Inc. (Child Safe) is a child advocacy center located in Sedalia, MO. Our mission is to respond to and prevent child abuse, help families heal and restore childhood hope. We are committed to serving children who are alleged victims of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, exploitation and other traumatic events that involve a crime. We provide advocacy for the child and their non-offending family members.
Child Safe serves thirteen central Missouri counties which include Benton, Carroll, Chariton, Cooper, Henry, Hickory, Johnson, Lafayette, Linn, Morgan, Moniteau, Pettis and Saline.
Child Safe provides forensic interviews, sexual assault medical exam referrals and advocacy services, and trauma informed therapy services in response to allegations of child sexual abuse. Our goal is to limit the number of interviews a child is subjected to by bringing together all disciplines involved (Children’s Division, law enforcement, Juvenile Office, etc.) in a child-friendly setting in order to minimize the trauma to the child.
Child Safe also provides education programs for children, mandated reporters and the community and makes training available for professionals.
