At The Children and Family Center we envision a home, a community and a world

without abuse. Through the collaborative efforts of community individuals and

services agencies, programs have evolved to meet the specialized needs of the

individuals and families served in this rural area. Our goal is to empower victims

of domestic violence and/or and sexual assault to make permanent changes to

end the violence in their lives.


Our Mission


The Children and Family Center is for individuals and families who

have experienced abuse to find safe shelter and a nurturing environment to

learn and grow through advocacy and dedicated services. We serve victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault and provide community education in the five counties of Northwest Missouri – Nodaway, Atchison, Holt, Gentry and Worth.




Current financial statements available upon request.




The Children and Family Center began as a community response to address issues of domestic violence and sexual assault in NW MO.   The first year (2002) we served 103 clients.  The number of clients served and number of direct services has increased each year as we all work together to strengthen families in our community.
