History

February 1998

Payne County BAR Association made funds available for an April 1998 "Child Watch Tour". The tour allowed many concerned citizens in Payne County to experience a reenactment of an abused child's journey through "the system". Immediately following this tour, a task force formed and appointed an 18 member Board of Directors.

July 23,1998

The Child Advocacy Center of Payne County, Inc. became an incorporated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

September 1999

An Executive Director was hired and the agency began serving the community in their temporary housing.

The Center began doing business as The Saville Center after Dorothy Saville, a long-time Stillwater resident, gave a substantial donation.

In 2002, largely due to funds donated by Dorothy Saville, our permanent home was purchased and renovations began.

July 21, 2003

The Saville Center made a smooth transition into their new home without interruption to their services.

The Center is located in a lovely 65 year old home located in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The house was owned by the same family until it was sold to us.

The Saville Center brings together all the professionals and agencies needed to offer services: law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution, mental health, medical, and advocacy.
