Mission Statement

Denver Children's Home restores hope and health to traumatized children and families through a comprehensive array of therapeutic, educational, and community-based services.

Description

Denver Children's Home is a unique residential, daytime, and community-based treatment center and school for severely traumatized children, many of whom have suffered abuse and neglect. Programs work on a continuum across facility, home, school, and community settings.

Our overarching goal is for students to realize increased mental health functioning and school success.

Our objectives are the following:

  • Provide the most effective, but least restrictive treatment based on individual needs of each child
  • Prepare every student to find success in our complex society by providing an effective and differentiated educational experience
  • Progress children, even those with the most serious mental health disorders, through various levels of care and eventually return them home or to an alternative community-based setting
  • Offer a positive alternative to psychiatric hospitalization, combining intensive therapy, individualized academic support, and advanced drug treatments for biologically based mental illnesses
  • Help 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
  • Help families and caregivers gain access to the support and services they need to stabilize families.
