 Too often, the 'system' lacks a true recognition of a child's needs, which furthers any damage that began in the biological home. Jen's Place offers an environment that is based on normalizing, nourishing, encouraging, supporting, stimulating and strengthening capabilities as part of a treatment program.

It is the mission of Jen's Place, with each and every child we work with, to provide the child with an environment in which he or she now belongs. The mission intends to assist each child to identify his or her own capacities, their own talents, their own resiliency, their own strengths and ability to successfully address the struggles they face.
