Caring for Idaho’s Children Since 1908
The Children’s Home Society of Idaho opened its doors in 1908 as an orphanage. Today, the organization offers a variety of progressive mental, emotional and behavioral health services at its Warm Springs Counseling Center, and remains true to its mission to improve the lives of children in the community. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay.
Our Service Population
Children and families served by Children’s Home Society are located primarily in southwest Idaho. The majority of our service population are children (85% aged 17 and under) who come from low-income households and are considered “at-risk” due to their economic, physical, and/or emotional status. The conditions treated range from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to anxiety, depression and grief to self-esteem issues and eating disorders.
During calendar year 2012, the following outcomes were achieved:
- Total number of client hours: 28,819
- Total number of visits: 21,178
- Total number of unique clients: 1,413
- Percentage of client visits subsidized by the Community Sponsorship Program: 82% for a total of 17,365 subsidized visits.
If you or someone you know needs our help, please contact us to schedule an appointment. If you’d like to help support our cause, please consider a donation. 100% of your donation provides subsidies to those who cannot afford to pay or co-pay for services.
