Thank you notes from some of our residents

For a child away from home, the holidays can be an especially tough time. This year we are asking for your help to make this a season of delight and celebration for the kids in our care.  The Home’s Holiday Giving Program assists us in providing gifts and/or activities for the many boys and girls who call The Children’s Home their home as well as the children in our Treatment Foster Care Program.  Residents at The Children’s Home range in age from 13 to 21. Ages vary for the Treatment Foster Care program.

Each child in our care completes a holiday wish list.  Click here to see the individual wish lists.

Gifts can be delivered curbside during one of our Drop-Off Days, or shipped to:

The Children’s Home
Attn: Wish List
205 Bloomsbury Ave
Catonsville, MD 21228

Please be sure to include your name and address with any packages so that we may send an acknowledgment.
