Vision

Guardian House envisions a community in which all parents view the emotional well-being and stability of their children as a priority.

Goals

  • Provide a therapeutic, child-focused environment for children of separation or divorce to successfully maintain and build relationships with both parents.
  • Create a home-like environment in which children and parents can engage in routine activities, such as baking or playing on the playground.
  • Provide education for parents to appropriately meet the developmental needs of their children.
  • Assist parents and children to integrate within their new family structure after separation or divorce.
  • Facilitate healing that must occur before a healthy relationship can be established between a parent and child.
  • Educate parents regarding the impact of parental conflict on their child’s development.
  • Increase the likelihood that both parents will remain active in the lives of their children.

Since 1997, we have continually increased services to meet the complex needs of local children struggling to cope with significant changes in their lives.
