Hannah’s Children’s Homes Tries To Fill Need For Foster Care

Hannah’s Children’s Homes strives to provide safe and nurturing environments for children while working to preserve families and establish permanency. The ultimate goal is to empower and strengthen at-risk families through culturally sensitive educational training, therapeutic services and interventions.

Almost 900,000 children each year in America are abused or neglected, one every 36 seconds. Forty percent of these children get no services at all after the initial investigation. Each year, more than 800,000 children spend time in foster care. On any given night, 200,000 children are homeless — 1 in every 4 of the homeless population.

Hannah’s Children’s Homes must expand prevention and specialized treatment services for children and their parents, connect children to caring permanent families, improve the quality of the child welfare workforce and increase accountability for results for children.
