Providing a Home and a Future Since 1950

We want to provide you with all the information you need to make the best placement decision possible for every child entrusted to your care.

Since welcoming the first young people on our campus in 1950, the mission of Boys & Girls Haven has never changed: we are here to serve children who have nowhere else to turn. On average, our residents have experienced 12 – 16 placements before they come to us and they are often 2 – 3 years behind in school. Most have compounded trauma and, as a result, face behavioral and social challenges.

For this reason, we are known across the state for our success working with some of the most difficult-to-place children. Our unique continuum of care for children of all genders, from newborn to 21, allows us to meet the individual needs of children as they navigate the foster care system. In addition, our highly qualified staff members employ a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach to ensure every young person who crosses our doorstep is given their very best chance to heal and thrive.
