Who We Are

The Children’s Center was founded in 1833 by people who cared greatly for children.  Their dedication has lived on for over 185+ years by those who serve on our volunteer Board of Directors, our compassionate employees and friends in the community who donate their time and funds.  We are all united by our desire to help children. You can learn more about some of our employees in the “employee recognition” section.  Lists of our Board members and those on the Administrative Team are also provided.
