The Parent Child Center of Tulsa
The Parent Child Center of Tulsa's mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect through education, treatment and advocacy. The work of The Parent Child Center of Tulsa began in 1972. The current agency structure was officially incorporated on May 1, 1990, merging two smaller United Way agencies: Child Abuse Prevention Services and At Risk Parent Child Program.The agency provides state of the art child abuse prevention programming, and has become known for innovation in the area of infant mental health. The agency has become a leader working to change local court and child welfare systems to improve outcomes and prevent future court involvement in the lives of very young children through the community collaborative effort of the Safe Babies Court Team. In February 2008, the agency received national accreditation through the Council on Accreditation, and was re-accredited in February 2012. Today, The Parent Child Center of Tulsa is considered a leader among Tulsa area nonprofits in the areas of best practice, quality improvement and outcome evaluation.
