A Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Alice C. Tyler Village of Childhelp. We are a community of caring professionals who support children in finding recovery from the effects of abuse, neglect and exploitation. The Village is a wonderful place for children to come and find the support they need in challenging times. Please enjoy looking around the website and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions that you may have.

The Village

The Village brings the light of love and healing into the lives of countless abused and neglected children, and those suffering from psychiatric and behavioral disorders. Our unique location on a 270-acre horse farm provides a nurturing treatment setting with a variety of therapy resources. Children live in separate home-like cottages based on age and gender. Each child has daily opportunities to pursue a variety of recreational activities: horseback riding, community outings, hiking and biking trails, rope courses, team sports, Go-Kart track, swimming, and a children’s choir.

Childhelp’s Village takes a holistic approach to serving children. In addition to meeting their physical, emotional and educational needs, we also see to address the spiritual needs. With a full-time Chaplain on staff, regular, voluntary non-denominational services and literature are available as well as the use of nature through gardening, animal care and nature study.
