WHO WE ARE!

The Children’s Home of Reading (CHOR) is a “Sanctuary” certified agency, completing initial certification in 2010. We continue to grow within the philosophy of the Sanctuary Model and are dedicated to providing trauma informed care approaches to healing. As such, consumers are viewed as people who are likely to have histories of physical, sexual and/or other types of abusive trauma-inducing experiences, and this often leads to mental health and other types of co-occurring disorders. Our treatment approaches are based on an understanding of the vulnerabilities or triggers of trauma survivors so that our services are more supportive and avoid re-traumatization. Our services recognize the consumer’s need to be respected, informed, connected, and hopeful regarding their own recovery; the interrelation between trauma and symptoms of trauma (e.g. sexual acting out, depression, anxiety, etc.); and the need to work in a collaborative way with consumers (and also with family and support people of the consumer) and with other human services agencies in a manner that will empower consumers..

“Reunification with parents was always the primary goal… and still is today!”
