For 157 years, The Children’s Home has cared for and protected Maryland’s vulnerable youth.  There are no shut-downs for us.  These children need and deserve our protection after facing years of trauma, abuse and violence.  Help us meet their needs; join the MOVEment today.  Together, we can be GAME CHANGERS in the lives of Maryland’s youth.
