Stable, caring families are the foundation of a healthy community—and the birthright of every child. At CHD’s child, adolescent and family services, we work to strengthen and heal at-risk children and families through a variety of supportive, community-based programs and services.
Our behavioral health and social welfare experts work with children and their families to identify the emotional, developmental and behavioral issues that can negatively impact their lives and develop solutions to help these at-risk children succeed and live happier, more fulfilling lives.
Studies show that early intervention is critical in helping at-risk children achieve their potential. At CHD we offer a wide range of programs designed to nurture and support infants, toddlers and their families. Learn more

Our services include help with finding food, schools for the children, and employment for the parents. Learn more

However, many children today are living in environments that are unstable, non-nurturing, or even dangerous. CHD’s child welfare professionals work hard to ensure that every child in our program is living in a safe environment – and receiving the care, nutrition, education and love that they need to thrive.
