  • Strengthening Families

    The Challenge

    Over
    one-third of
    Pennsylvania kids

    live in single-parent families. The resultant struggles around childcare, education, food, and housing can all become much greater stressors on the children and the family.

  • Spirituality

    The Challenge

    Too many
    families still
    struggle alone.

    Many communities have lost their sense of connectedness - their identities. And far too many children live in the shadows of life, left to suffer in silence.

The Children’s Home is there when kids can’t go home.

Welcome UMHC - Where Young Hearts Get New Starts - Banner

Thanks for all you do.

Daniel J. Brannen
President and CEO

Kids come to Children’s Home for many reasons. Usually they are removed by court-order from unsafe homes or dangerous situations. These young people have been neglected, abandoned, abused and assaulted. Many suffer from post-traumatic stress or other disorders. Often, they are developmentally disadvantaged for their ages.

Our dedicated staff teaches them how to live through their pain and find new ways to cope. We help them understand the situations that brought them to us. As they recover and heal, we also prepare them to go out into the world. Along the way, we become their home and family.

Accomplishing this unique youth-centered mission takes caring, patience, and your financial support. We appreciate your interest, engagement and continuing generosity.
