About Denver Children's Home
Denver Children's Home restores hope and health to traumatized children and families through a comprehensive array of therapeutic, educational, and community-based services.
Denver Children's Home cares for the State of Colorado's abused and neglected children. DCH serves a significantly challenged population. 98% of the children at DCH come from families whose income levels are below federal poverty guidelines. By the time DCH's clients reach Denver Children's Home, more than a third of them have been involved in the juvenile justice system, the majority has passed through the social services system, and most have failed in one or more academic and/or mental health settings.
Denver Children's Home:
- Provides the Most effective, but least restrictive type of treatment based on the individual needs of each child.
- Progresses children, even those with the most serious disorders, through the levels of care and eventually return them home or to an alternative community-based setting.
- Offers a positive alternative to psychitric hospitalization, combining intensive therapy, individualized academic support, and advanced drug treatments for biologically based mental illnesses.
- Helps children take ownership of their treatment, to understand their reactions and responses to life events, accept responsibility for their actions, control their behavior, and develop coping mechanisms for difficulties beyond their control.
