Since 1909, Childhaven has been a safe and caring place for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Today, we are a community leader, statewide advocate and national model in the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Using innovative, proven approaches to child development in a therapeutic day care environment, we heal old hurts and nurture young lives. By strengthening family and child relationships and improving parenting skills, we break the cycle of abuse and neglect and create a foundation for lifelong loving relationships.
On a more personal note. This organization became my home. It was my first job out of college. I am going on one year here and I already feel as if it consumes me. These children not only need me, but I need them. On weekends I constantly think of what I can do to better their lives here at Childhaven. I am blessed and honored to be a part of this amazing team. It is truly making a difference and needs the support of its community to continue to grow.
Budget cuts every year effect programs such as this, that are honestly so needed. These children need to have a therapeutic place to call home, and that is exactly what Childhaven is!
Anything helps. I do not want to see this organization die out because of budget cuts. It is too important.
