The Children’s Home of Reading helps at-risk youth in Berks and Schuylkill Counties and the Greater Lehigh Valley area. We are a Joint Commission and “Sanctuary” certified agency offering programs in residential, community-based, and educational services. We are grateful for your commitment to support our mission of "Caring for the needs of children and families in crisis and preparing them for success in life."

For the last 135years, The Children’s Home of Reading has responded to the needs of children and families in crisis in Berks County and surrounding communities. While the needs and programs have changed, one thing remains the same, The Children’s Home of Reading prepares children for success in life. Today, the services provided are treatment-oriented…because the children who pass through our doors face serious barriers to success. They come to us with serious mental health and behavioral challenges. They come to us abused, neglected and afraid. They come to us without hope. While some have loving families that just don’t know how to help their children get through these difficult days, many of them have not experienced childhood in the way that most of us do.

In our 135thyear, Children’s Home of Reading adapts and adjusts. During these unprecedented times, CHOR is open and continues to provide services through our programs. To learn more and to sign up for our newsletter, visit our website at www.buildingkidslives.org
