Our mission is committed to providing a child friendly environment to the abused and neglected children and to support child abuse prevention efforts in Southeastern North Carolina.
The Carousel Center is a non-profit organization committed to assisting victims of child abuse, providing critical care services to children from approximately eight counties throughout southeastern North Carolina. Referrals are made through law enforcement, social services and physicians.
