Midwest Children’s Resource Center
Child abuse and neglect
We're here to help with the unexpected
Abuse is a serious and painful experience that no child should have to endure. But, when a child is affected by abuse, Midwest Children's Resource Center (MCRC) is here to provide the specialized care kids need to heal.
MCRC is a child advocacy center (CAC) and clinic within Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. We offer medical evaluations and case management in alleged child abuse cases, serious neglect and witness to violence.
The program at MCRC has multiple components:
Our experienced team is dedicated to providing the following services to victims of physical and sexual abuse and serious neglect:
Every year, more than 1,100 children ages 0 to 18 visit us. We welcome each child and their family with compassion, dedicated service and expert care. MCRC receives referrals from law enforcement, emergency departments, primary physicians, child protection services, parents, self referrals and a variety of community agencies.
We're at the front of the latest research and care
We stay current on the latest research and best practices in the field of child abuse so we can provide the most advanced care. Providers and facilities frequently reach out to us for our input on difficult or challenging cases. We have access to countless experts across a variety of fields who offer insight and answers when we have questions.
Working in concert with other advocacy centers means we are more than just a clinic, but a part of a national movement to end child abuse and its lasting effects.
