WHAT WE DO
We believe every child has value to society. We also believe every child in crisis is entitled to treatment, protection, and the chance to develop to his or her full human potential. The Children’s Home of Reading values family involvement in meeting the cultural, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the child. Children are referred to CHOR by many groups: the juvenile court system, mental health systems, hospitals, families, Children & Youth Services, and schools. Once they are place with us the services we provide are treatment oriented and trauma care informed. Each of these children face serious barriers to success. They come to us with serious mental health and behavioral challenges. They come to us abused, neglected and afraid. They come to us without hope. While some have loving families that just don’t know how to help their children get through these difficult days, many of them have not experienced childhood in the way that most of us do.
