Since 1884, The Children's Home of Reading has responded to the needs of children and families in crisis in Berks County and the surrounding communities. While the needs and programs have changed, one thing remains the same, The Children's Home of Reading prepares children for success in life.
Today, the services provided are treatment oriented because the children who pass through our doors face serious barriers to success. They come to us with serious mental health and behavioral challenges. They come to us abused, neglected and afraid. They come to us without hope. While some have loving families that just don't know how to help their children get through these difficult days, many of them have not experienced childhood in the way that most of us do.
