Mission Statement

The purpose of Kids' Korner is to provide a safe and enjoyable waiting area for children whose parents or guardians are conducting court business thus enabling the courts to conduct business in an orderly fashion.


Prior to Kids' Korner opening in 1994, children in the courthouse were often left unattended or brought into court proceedings putting them at risk of being adversely affected by witnessing adult matters. Since Kids' Korner opened over 54,000 children have had a safe, enjoyable place to wait. They receive sustained and encouraging adult contact from trained staff and volunteers. Thanks to our three projects, the children receive items to take home as a comfort to them during a stressful time. Our "Give-A-Blanket" project provides a handmade blanket to every child on their first visit. Our "Give-A-Book" project provides a gently used or new book to each child on every visit. During the holidays, each child chooses a wrapped stuffed animal from under our giving tree to take home as part of our "Give-An-Animal-A-Home" Project.
