Children Hold Our Future
Childhood is the time to develop the fundamental skills and understanding necessary to lead happy, productive, and satisfying lives. Attainment of these goals may be profoundly affected by emotional and psychological pain and suffering caused by biology, trauma, loss, emotional disturbance, mental disability, and stigma.
The mission of Cutchins Programs for Children and Families is to provide highly competent, cost effective services to help families, children, and adolescents who are experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties. We provide clinical assessment and treatment, special education, and behavioral intervention, both in the community and at our residential sites, closely coordinated with the child’s family and service network. Our work helps to stabilize behavior and then transform painful childhood, adolescent, family, and biological challenges into lifetime resilience and hope.
The vision of Cutchins Programs for Children and Families is to ease suffering and interrupt patterns of despair. We will provide healthy models of relationship and communication. We will lead with innovation and integrity, serving as a model for best practices. We will work diligently with family and other health care and human service providers to insure that the continuum of care fully meets the needs of those we serve. We will enhance our services with carefully planned growth.
