Child Safe of Central Missouri, Inc. (Child Safe) is a child advocacy center located in Sedalia, MO. Child Safe is committed to serving children who are alleged victims of severe physical or sexual abuse and providing advocacy for their non-offending family members.
Child Safe serves eleven central Missouri counties which include Benton, Carroll, Chariton, Henry, Johnson, Lafayette, Linn, Morgan, Moniteau, Pettis and Saline.
Child Safe provides forensic interviews, sexual assault medical exam referrals, advocacy services in response to allegations of child sexual abuse, and a therapy program for the child. All services are free to the child and family. 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 available training for professionals.
