The Children's Home of Reading
For over 125 years, 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.
The Children's Home of Reading will continue to be a leader in the treatment of children and families in crisis by responding to the needs of the local Berks County community while providing a spectrum of services available to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and surrounding states; being known as a provider with a philosophy of acting in the best interest of children and families in need; and being seen as the provider who focuses on the strengths of the children
and families we serve. Thus, agencies will seek us first in serving the needs of children and families in crisis.
