Watch the video, In the Shelter of Each Other, and see why Childhaven makes such a difference in children's lives.

Curtis Young, our summer intern, wanted  to share why Childhaven is a special place that helps children in our community who need  our help and how the  “More the Merrier” Walk and Roll raises awareness (and funds) to make a difference.

Childhaven Cares!

Childhaven serves children and youth who have suffered from abuse, neglect and traumatic experiences. Our services are comprehensive, from 24-hour out of home care to the full spectrum of Child Advocacy Services aimed at investigating the abuse, treating the child and family members, and lending support and advocacy so that they may recover from their trauma. We serve children from infants through 21 years of age. We provide competent and caring services in an environment that is culturally competent, child centered, family focused and community based.

Since 1969, Childhaven has been a safe haven for child victims of abuse and neglect in the Four Corners region. Please join us as we continue to make a difference in the lives of children and families!
