The Northwest Children’s Home (NCH) is the oldest residential program in the state of Idaho.  We are a licensed therapeutic agency that treats children ages 6-17 who have experienced childhood trauma form abuse and/or neglect. Every child placed in our residential care program is offered individual and group therapy with a Master’s level therapist, recreation opportunities and a private therapeutic education. Staff led groups include a daily planning group and reflective process group. Every program is structured with new opportunities to help boys and girls obtain health and wellness, strive in education, and foster feelings of resiliency and empowerment to become goal driven individuals with a bright future. 

Through the development of an individual education plan, each child’s behavioral, social, and emotional problems are addressed using a variety of group and individual interventions.

Our Education Center provides a full range of required courses for graduation including reading, language arts, math, science, social sciences, physical education and visual arts. Accreditation by Advanced Ed allows for students to earn academic credit, which transfers to all public schools.  A 1:5 staff-to-student ratio creates a more enhanced leaning environment.  The ultimate goal is to return the student to a regular classroom.


 Northwest Children's Home is a private, non-profit youth rehabilitation facility and an educational entity.  This means that tax payers who donate to our organization may qualify for tax deductions as well as tax credits in the State of Idaho.
