Childhaven’s mission is “Lifting Children from Crisis to Hope.” We have been serving the San Juan County (SJC) community for 50 years, addressing issues of child abuse and neglect. In that time, our organization has grown from one program to six and from a yearly client population of 225 children to 1,028 children and parents to meet an increased community need for vital child victim services.
We believe that all children, youth, and adults should have the opportunity to be emotionally healthy and physically safe. We believe that every child, youth, and adult has a unique culture that defines his or her life. We believe that as our community’s needs change our services should change to meet those needs.
We advocate for children, youth, and adults to have physical and emotional well-being. We are aware of cultural differences and actively incorporate them into the environment. We will incorporate practices that are proven the most successful into the services we provide to the community.
