Compassion. Strength. Hope.

Children are a precious gift, and a wonderful challenge. We want to give each child and every parent the security, empathy, and skills they need to discover the joy of being a family.

Residential Services

We provide a safe place for children who have been the victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment to reside and recover. Children from birth to 16 can stay overnight or for an extended term, receiving the support and safety they need to begin the healing process.

Family Strengthening

Healthy, happy kids grow from strong families. We provide training and support for parents/guardians learning to become their best selves, for their sake and for their children.

Hope Center

Harvey E. Najim Hope Center

The Harvey E. Najim Hope Center is our mental health clinic, providing free and low-cost counseling and social work services for children and families. Here, we ask not “what’s wrong with you?” but “what has happened to you?”

 

The Children’s Shelter formed Family Tapestry in August 2018 to restructure the service delivery model of critical services to ensure children and youth experience safety, well-being, and permanency.
