The Children's Center is a "good place for children" and their families. Originally designed as a safe haven for children whose parents are attending court, the mission of the center, under the direction of the University of Rochester, has grown to include three functions: (1) to provide a physical and emotional safe haven for the child while their parents are in court; (2) to provide a model for early learning; and (3) to provide a setting in which children and families can be linked to needed services.

Wish List:
  • books (especially picture books and early readers)
  • cleaning supplies

Volunteers Needed:
  • Work with staff to provide child-care services for children while families are in court.
    Requirements are a happy smile and a big heart!
