The mission of Hannah’s Children’s Homes is to provide safe and nurturing environments for children while working to preserve families and establish permanency. Our ultimate goal is to empower and strengthen at-risk families through culturally sensitive educational training, therapeutic services and interventions.
Children Are America’s Priority The Problem:
Almost 900,000 children each year in America are abused or neglected, one every 36 seconds. Forty percent of these children get no services at all after the initial investigation. Each year, more than 800,000 children spend time in foster care. On any given night, 200,000 children are homeless — 1 in every 4 of the homeless population.
Why It Matters:
The annual total direct and indirect costs of child maltreatment are estimated to be nearly $104 billion. Children left with no permanent family connections or a connection with a caring adult have no one to whom they can turn for social, emotional or financial support and face numerous barriers as they struggle to become self-sufficient adults. What Must Be Done: We must expand prevention and specialized treatment services for children and their parents, connect children to caring permanent families, improve the quality of the child welfare workforce and increase accountability for results for children.
