What We Do
Not all children get the help or love they deserve. 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 comprehensive education, intensive treatment and care for children (birth to 18) in need, as well as counseling to adults of all ages.
The overarching goal for all Thompson programs is to bring at-risk children forward into safety and fulfillment, and to ensure families thrive. That’s why every member of the Thompson family will do whatever it takes to help children feel safe, strong, happy and loved as we work to build a community of learning and healing.
Last year, Thompson programs served over 12,000 children and families.
