Kids' Harbor, Inc.
Kids' Harbor, Inc., is a Child Advocacy Center serving the Lake of the Ozarks area in central Missouri, Fort Leonard Wood and surrounding areas. This agency assists victims of child abuse and their non-offending family members as they make their way through the difficult and often frightening process of a child abuse investigation.
Services are provided to children, free of charge, ages 2-18, referred by the Children's Division of Missouri Department of Social Services, Juvenile Authorities, and/or Law Enforcement. Most referrals involve allegations of sexual abuse but also include physical and emotional abuse as well as physical and medical neglect, witnesses to violence and drug endangered children. Services are designed to begin at the onset of the investigation. Early intervention and support has been shown to lessen the traumatic consequences that a child may experience during the criminal justice process.
Kids' Harbor Mission Statement: To provide a comprehensive, culturally competent, multidisciplinary response to allegations of sexual, physical and/or emotional abuse and neglect in a child friendly environment.
