American Children's Home

Healing broken spirits...taking away the hurt.

Our Beliefs

We believe that every young child has the inherent right to live and grow in a happy and loving environment. The American Children's Home seeks to provide the nurturing care that will heal a child's broken spirit and reunite families when possible who have experienced discord and separation.

Our Legacy

For over 85 years, the American Children's Home has provided the nurturing care to help heal children's broken spirits.  The focus of the American Children's Home is to provide a safe and loving home for children when their own homes are no longer safe and loving.  Our children are in the custody of the Department of Social Services by court-order and have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment.  These are children trying to cope with grief, attachment and anger issues.  They often have many emotional, physical, social and educational needs.  For most of these children, ACH is the safest and most secure environment they have ever experienced. 


Our Goals

Our goal is twofold...first to bring love, stability and guidance to the boys and girls who come to us for help and secondly, to reunite these children with their families whenever possible.
