Children's Resource Center (CRC)
The PinnacleHealth Children’s Resource Center (CRC) is a child advocacy center dedicated to providing compassionate, quality care in a safe, child-friendly environment for children suspected of having been abused or neglected. Our goal is to reduce the trauma caused by abuse and help children and their families begin the healing process.
Services We Offer
The CRC is one of the first nationally accredited child advocacy centers in Pennsylvania. Since opening in 1994, the CRC has provided services to over 10,000 children suspected of having been physically or sexually abused or neglected, or who have witnessed violence in their home or community.
With the interests of the children at the forefront, we:
- Interview children in a non-leading, non-suggestive manner
- Provide medical exams to ensure a child's health and safety
- Connect children and families to mental health services
The primary CRC office is located in Dauphin County and serves children in Cumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Mifflin, Juniata, Bedford and Blair Counties. In 2014, the CRC opened a satellite office in Lebanon County. This location is opened two days per week and offers services to children in the county who cannot otherwise travel to the CRC in Dauphin County.
