CARE House of Oakland County has served tens of thousands of children and families since 1977, with its advocacy, community outreach, intervention, prevention and treatment programs and services.
The Child Abuse and Neglect Council of Oakland County was established in 1977 as a Prevention Council, through a collaborative partnership of law enforcement agencies, Children's Protective Services, the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office, the Junior League of Birmingham and other stakeholders, and it continues that tradition of community collaboration.
In 1989, the Council expanded its scope beyond prevention by becoming a Child Advocacy Center, with the addition of its intervention and treatment services for child victims of abuse and their non-offending families.
The Council was the first in Oakland County to take a proactive approach in addressing the issues of child abuse and neglect, and has continued that mission-critical goal through programs and services which model its core belief:
It shouldn't hurt to be a child!
