About Us

Mt. Emily Safe Center (MESC), incorporated in 1999, is the only operating Child Abuse Intervention Center in Eastern Oregon that provides medical and forensic exams, insurance billing, community education on child abuse, and clinical services to victims of child abuse and their non-offending family members. We are open five days a week and on call evenings and weekends. The Safe Center provides quality comprehensive services to all children in Eastern Oregon ages 0-17 who may have been victims of severe physical abuse, sexual abuse, or witness abuse. Mt.
