Childhaven Overview — Programs and Services

Childhaven was established as a private non-profit in 1969 to serve as a shelter for abused, neglected and abandoned children, serving the Four Corners region. For the first year of operation, Childhaven was managed entirely by a volunteer staff. From this enthusiastic start, Childhaven now utilizes the services of nearly 50 staff and contractors to assure the safety, well being, and permanency of these children.

Childhaven was named in 2009 by the State of New Mexico as a Core Service Agency for children and youth in our area as the place to refer children with severe emotional disturbances for assessment and case oversight. Childhaven recognizes the unique needs of the children/youth and families that we serve and ensures that the impact of trauma on the client and family are addressed in a culturally competent and therapeutic manner.
