About Childhaven

A safe haven for children,
a healing place for families







Since 1909, Childhaven has been a safe and caring place for babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers.

Childhaven’s healing-centered framework embeds relational health, trauma-informed care, racial equity, and social justice in all places in which children and families live, learn, and play. Childhaven’s mission is to partner with parents and the community to strengthen families, prevent childhood trauma, and prepare children for a lifetime of well-being.
