By focusing on the whole family, the services provided by Casa de los Niños help everyone become stronger, more resilient, and able to thrive.
Supporting children & families, whenever they need us
Casa de los Niños has been a leader in implementing programs that meet or exceed current standards for preventing child abuse, educating and supporting parents, quickly intervening when abuse has occurred, and effectively treating those who have been abused or neglected.
Through these programs, we strive to improve the lives of children and their families and reduce the long-term social and financial costs of child abuse for our community.
Educating & Supporting Parents
Successful prevention strategies include curbing the underlying causes of child abuse and neglect by strengthening protective factors such as skills, resources, and tools for parents to ensure healthy children, families, and safe home environments built on natural support networks within their own family and community.
Helping when problems arise
Supportive intervention increases the odds of favorable behavioral, cognitive, developmental, emotional, physical, and social outcomes for children who either have been or are at risk of becoming victims of abuse or neglect. Programs with comprehensive services, in partnership with the family and the community, create an integrated plan for meeting the child’s and family’s multiple needs.
Restoring Health and Stability
Our treatment services incorporate a continuum of services and activities which support and enhance the family unit, and preserve and reunify the family through strength based child- and family-focused services that are coordinated and accessible, comprehensive, community-based, and culturally responsive.
