ABOUT US

KidsPeace, founded in 1882, is a private charity dedicated to serving the behavioral and mental health needs of children, families and communities. The organization was originally a home for children orphaned by a smallpox epidemic, but has grown over the years to meet the ever-changing needs of children and adolescents. KidsPeace offers services in Georgia, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Our continuum of care includes a psychiatric hospital; a comprehensive range of residential treatment programs; accredited educational services; and a variety of foster care and community-based treatment programs to help children and families in need transform their lives.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Our foster parents tell us that KidsPeace Foster Care is better than other foster care programs because of the special attention our staff gives to every family. We take the time to help our foster parents determine the characteristics of kids that will fit best in their homes; we provide ongoing, child-specific training; and we are available 24/7 to offer support and guidance. Our foster parents tell us time and again that caring for KidsPeace children has enriched their own family lives.

TOGETHER FACING THE CHALLENGE
KidsPeace understands that providing foster care to children and adolescents requires knowledge about the effects of trauma on the developing child. We have developed a system of service that integrates trauma-informed approaches to promote healing and resiliency.

KidsPeace has partnered with Duke University and Penn State University to research and develop the Together Facing the Challenge training and treatment curriculum. Findings have shown that there are three factors largely responsible for helping kids in foster care succeed. Together Facing the Challenge helps us by ensuring:

Supportive and involved relationships between caseworkers and foster parents;
Effective use of behavior management strategies by foster parents and
Supportive and involved relationships between foster parents and the youth in their care.
