The mission of Childcare auburn is to provide opportunities to build strong children, strong families, and strong communities through developing a person’s mind, body, and spirit. We achieve this mission by building character, academic achievement, and raising the self-esteem of youth and families living in underserved communities. Our organization recognizes the need for high-quality youth and family services for those in need in our extended community.
Care One Child Development Center focuses on helping children and families that live in poverty, youth and teens who are at-risk for dropping out of school, participate in criminal activity, and are at-risk for child abuse and/or neglect. Furthermore, our agency is geared toward rebuilding the family structure by offering services to parents who have an issue with substance abuse, anger management, domestic violence, and have been identified by a preponderance of evidence by the Department of Human Services for child abuse and/or neglect through categories I, II, III. We serve more than 10,000 vulnerable children and families each year.
This service is geared toward children in the age range of 0-17, their families, schools, and community agencies to educate them how to address and prevent dangerous situations of physical abuse and/or the neglect of children from occurring. The goals of this program are to bring awareness on how to interpret and detect the warning signs of children being physically abused or neglected, teach students and educational institutions how to recognize, handle, and report bullying, teach school-aged children how to say no when approached by strangers, and build positive friendships and families.
Prevention services recognize the need of the children through observation. For example, children who are observed to be poorly clothed, have holes in his or her shoes or complain about being hungry, this service will work with the family to eliminate the threat of physical neglect by providing the family with community resources and financial assistance as well as teach the family how to prevent neglect in the future.
