How your contribution makes a difference-
They come to us every day, holding the hand of a social worker or a teen runaway escorted by the security of a policeman. Their eyes tell their stories. But once at the shelters, the children and teens know they’re safe. From the abuse, neglect, abandonment, and parental rejection. Some have come before; some will come again. They stay until it’s safe to go back home or out-of-home care can be found. Our shelters are a place for children to heal physically and emotionally. Children may remain in care for a few hours, or for several weeks, or for a few months.
The Children’s Home and Teen Shelter are committed to providing youth, a safe, supportive environment in which they can make constructive decisions about their future and their relationships with others.
Our Services Include: Basic Care Emergency Shelter & Assessment Services for youth ages 1-17. Toll-free Hotline, food, clothing, school supplies, personal items, and toys. Advocacy through the medical and legal systems. Transportation. Confidential counseling- individual, group, family, and after-care. Information and referral to other community services. Community and education and outreach.
