We’re dedicated to making the future bright

Kids who come through the doors of Midwest Children’s Resource Center (MCRC) have been through some of the scariest moments of their life. We do everything possible to make them feel safe and comfortable when they’re here, and help them transition successfully to the future.

  • Behaviors suggesting abuse

Specific services offered:

  • Medical evaluations that screen for abuse and psychosocial functioning
  • Individual therapy and adolescent group therapy
  • Physical and mental health care follow-up referrals
  • Identification of potential barriers to successful transitioning to adulthood
  • Education for families about the role of the criminal and juvenile justice systems

Psychological services for children ages 3-18 and their caregivers, include:

Also, we have developed the Runaway Intervention Program (RIP) that helps empower teen runaways and rape victims, and facilitates safe returns to their homes and families. Research shows that six months into the program, half of participants have significantly reduced emotional stress.

MCRC also serves as a respected training program for child abuse professionals. We developed training for medical professionals called Medical Training Academy – now nationally recognized. Learn how to apply for this training.
