What We Do

Nearly 1 in 7 US kids and teens has a mental health condition, and half go untreated, report a study by JAMA Pediatrics.

Trauma and abuse can seriously damage a child during their critical formative years. Thompson believes fragile, suffering children can be made whole again. To support this belief, our work centers on the clinical treatment and well-being of children and families. Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, today Thompson operates four distinct campuses, each providing services from three core pillars; Early Childhood, Family Stability and Mental Health. Services cover comprehensive education, intensive treatment and care for children (birth to 18) in need, as well as counseling to adults of all ages.


100% of the children and families served by our A Child's Place program serves live under the federal poverty level. School, service and retails closings are having an exponential impact on the most vulnerable people in our community – homeless children and their families. We have several giving options to help support their needs through the transition to a new normal over the coming months -

Many of the children we serve arrive in our care without many of life's basic essentials; bedding, towels, hygiene items and clothes. Our supplies of these items are at an all time low and need replenished - please consider shopping our Amazon wish list.
