Emergency response to abused, abandoned and exploited children and families requires The Children’s Center, Inc. to be in a constant state of readiness. Once the child or family is safely removed to safety, an emergency shelter, host home or transitional living program is often the next step in recovery. Food, shelter, clothing, hygiene supplies medical care, and many other presenting needs, requires the attention of caring people. Financial support makes this possible.
