Created in 1978, the mission of Children’s House is to provide a safe, secure place for children to overcome the devastating effects of abuse and neglect, regardless of social or economic background. Children’s House is a friendly, home-like environment, providing assessment, childhood development services, education services and therapy, at no cost and in one location, sparing the child from going to multiple sites in order to provide for their educational, developmental, psychological and social needs. Of equal importance, families and caregivers also learn skills to strengthen their ability to nurture, raise, and educate their children.
