What is Monroe Harding? An opportunity for change! Children and youth in state custody or foster care find safety, support, and caring people. We provide comprehensive services for children and youth who are in foster care or who have aged out of foster care. Our programs include: Foster care, Cooperative Living, Independent Living, and Youth Connections, A Resource Center for young adults who are transitioning from or who have aged out of Foster Care. We’ve been changing the lives of young people since 1893 when we started as an orphanage. Today, our young people get a family that helps then make educational gains, develop healthy relationships, have fun, volunteer in the community, and find jobs. We are about developing happy, healthy, young people who can and will thrive!
