Denver Children's Home restores hope and health to traumatized children and families through a comprehensive array of therapeutic, educational, and community-based services.
We care for the State's abused and neglected children. We serve a significantly challenged population. 98% of the children at DCH come from families whose income levels are below federal poverty guidelines. By the time our clients reach DCH, more than a third of them have been involved with the Juvenile Justice system, the majority has passed through the social services system, and most have failed in one or more academic and/or mental health settings.
Denver Children's Home:
- Provides the most effective, but least restrictive type of treatment based on the individual needs of each child.
- Progresses children, even those with the most serious disorders, through the levels of care and eventually return them home or to an alternative community-based setting.
- Offers a positive alternative to psychiatric hospitalization, combining intensive therapy, individualized academic support, and advanced drug treatments for biologically based mental illnesses.
- Helps children take ownership of their treatment; to understand their reactions and responses to life events, accept responsibility for their actions, control their behavior, and develop coping mechanisms for difficulties beyond their control.
