For 37 years Cutchins Programs for Children & Families has created a small, interpersonal, radically respectful environment in which the long-term impact of trauma, emotional, and behavioral challenges can be recognized and treated; and where families and children can find a caring, nonjudgmental and supportive atmosphere. Our residential, outpatient, and special education services provide children and families struggling with the effects of trauma and mental illness in a sanctuary of safety and love

Cutchins has always stood for protecting childhood, one child at a time. We continue to provide exceptional outpatient care, residential treatment, in-home care, and alternative schooling to children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbance.  In an ever changing environment of children’s mental health, Cutchins is taking a leadership role to orient care and services around the needs of families and not the other way around.  The world is hungry for the soulful kindness and clinical sophistication for which Cutchins is known. Our vision is to proactively promulgate these attributes into the world to create a skilled, loving, non-stigmatized community for those most in need.

"We saw [our son] come to life during the past year and want to thank you for keeping our son safe and doing for him what we could not. All of this was done with kindness and love..."

– Cutchins Parent

Individuals like you are how we can continue to provide the loving and non-stigmatizing care we are known for.  Traditional insurance and governmental funding sources work against providing this type of long-term and innovative care—care based around working with the children, their families, and their communities.  Your contribution makes you a partner in creating a haven of safety and hope for some of our most vulnerable and troubled children.
