Protecting Children. Preserving Families. Since 1915.

Through strength-based partnership ACH brings resources and skills to children and families struggling with life's challenges. Together we develop solutions that create safety, hope, love and the capacity to thrive.

You can help give hope

You can help us give abused, neglected and at-risk children the future they deserve by getting involved in the following ways.

We’re ready to help.

Our services are designed to help children, youth and families succeed! From family counseling to specialized services for teens and foster children.

Kids need your help today

Are you ready to make a difference in a child’s life? We are here to help those who have a calling to foster or adopt.
Abuse, neglect and family separation are significant problems in the communities we serve, and without help, the long-term impact on children can prevent them from living healthy, productive lives. Our programs are designed to prevent child abuse, neglect and family separation and help heal and treat children already affected by these tragedies. With over a century of experience working with children, we know that the best way to accomplish our mission is to work with families, whenever possible, to strengthen their ability to care for their children safely.
