At Elmcrest Children's Center,

“building on the promise of children and families” is more than a tagline. It is the mission that we have pursued since our founding in 1845.

In order to best protect the promise of childhood, it's the mission of Elmcrest Children's Center to create and deliver residential and community-based services to children and families that meet their needs as well as the needs of the community. Our values are simple, but they are the core of our mission, ourselves, our programs, our organization, and all of those we serve. Honesty. Willingness to learn. Dedication to purpose. Social concern. Self-examination.
