About Us

At Child Saving Institute (CSI), we believe in the right of each child to have a childhood — a safe, happy time to learn and grow. Unfortunately, not every child in our community has a good experience during the period from birth to adulthood, and that's where we come in.

During the last century, our legacy has grown far beyond just "saving" children—we work passionately and creatively to meet the needs of children and their families.

  • We serve pregnant women and young parents. 
  • We help young adults acquire the skills they need to transition to independence. 
  • We serve foster parents and biological families to help them learn the skills they need for family well-being. 
  • And we work with kids, all kinds of kids—babies, toddlers, elementary-aged, junior high and high school—to ensure all children in our community are safe, healthy and loved.

In the face of abuse and neglect, this work can sometimes be daunting, but the rewards of success—a child's carefree grin, a teen's sense of value—make the journey well worth it.

Please look through our list of services to see how we can help you and your family make your way to happiness and success. Or, if you feel as strongly as we do about the importance of childhood, please make a gift and support the children who live in our community.

Our Mission

The mission of CSI is "responding to the cry of a child."

Our Vision

Our vision is that all children have homes where hope is kindled and dreams can be achieved. This is our work, and they are ALL our children.

Our Values
