Daniel J. Brannen
President and CEO
Kids come to Children’s Home for many reasons. Usually they are removed by court-order from unsafe homes or dangerous situations. These young people have been neglected, abandoned, abused and assaulted. Many suffer from post-traumatic stress or other disorders. Often, they are developmentally disadvantaged for their ages.
Our dedicated staff teaches them how to live through their pain and find new ways to cope. We help them understand the situations that brought them to us. As they recover and heal, we also prepare them to go out into the world. Along the way, we become their home and family.
Accomplishing this unique youth-centered mission takes caring, patience, and your financial support. We appreciate your interest, engagement and continuing generosity.
FOCUS Your Giving
