Where We Serve

The mission of the Laura Dester Children’s Center is to provide and maintain a safe, temporary placement for children who have been removed from their homes. The center is operated by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and serves children ages infant through 17 years old. The children may have been victims of neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, environmental neglect, medical neglect, abandonment, and the general deprivation of the basic needs for children to grow and thrive. The staff of the center works to understand and meet each child’s immediate needs until arrangements are made for their continuing care elsewhere.
