Author: The Children's Center of Transylvania County
We believe every child deserves a safe, nurturing, healthy home environment!
The Children's Center has many programs designed to improve the lives of children of Transylvania County, NC. We partner with parents and a variety of agencies that work with children to help accomplish our goals.
Our Mission is to create, maintain, and operate a center that shall coordinate a multidisciplinary approach for services for children who are at risk of, or victims of, neglect and abuse in Transylvania County.
The Children's Center grew out of concern of a group of local community members who felt that abused children should be represented by an organization whose sole function was to advocate for these children. So for over 25 years, The Children's Center has been advocating for abused and neglected children.
Children have the right to be safe. Adults have the responsibility to ensure this basic right for all children. You can make a report of child abuse by calling, writing, or visiting your county Department of Social Services, the Child Protective Services Division at 106 E. Morgan Street, Brevard, NC or by calling 828.884.3174.
Any person or institution who has cause to suspect that a child is being abused or neglected is required by law to report.
