Since 1893, Monroe Harding has been changing young people’s lives. We step in as a family, providing resources for Homes, Healing, and Opportunities, what we call the “H20” that is vital to helping young people succeed.  Monroe Harding’s programming is aimed at providing therapeutic care to move families beyond trauma, develop resilience and repair as individuals, and promote reconciliation when possible.  We seek to prevent youth from entering care and ensure that youth in care or exiting care have the resources they need to lead successful, independent lives. 

 

Please join our Monroe Harding family. Get involved – volunteer, learn more about us, share our story, and, if you can, donate.

 

Young adults in Monroe Harding’s Independent Living and Youth Connections programs share their experience in foster care and what it means to have someone believe in you.

126
Years

Since 1893, Monroe Harding has continually adapted to meet the needs of children who are in, or transitioning out of state custody, caring for more than 16,000 children who have been abused, abandoned, or neglected.

We are meeting this mission through four key programs serving young people who are currently in or are transitioning from the foster care system: Foster CareResidential ProgramsEducation & Workforce Development, and Therapy & Healing.

In Their Own Words

|

With an education, I can achieve what I desire the most.  I will achieve and try my hardest, so I can be who I want to be.

|

I love being a foster parent for the rewarding feeling and gratitude of knowing I made a difference in a child’s life.

|

I have people around to tell me when I’m doing good when I am, and motivate me when I’m not.

|

I have never really had stability in my life.  While living with my Monroe Harding foster family, I’ve felt more love, support and stability in the past eight months than I have the past sixteen years.

Our Stories

#Family

Two little boys, age 5 and 6, have moved over 10 times in their young lives… Feeling unwanted and unsure of where they would go next, they moved to their new home. After noticing the “wall of love” in the house, one of their first questions was, “When will we get our names on the wall?”

Abigail

Three-year-old Abigail recently moved into the home of one our foster families. Our wonderful foster parents, Jason and Liz, knew that Abigail was confused, shy and unsure, but were heartened to see how much she enjoyed being with their little girls, all around Abigail’s age.

The Gordons

We celebrate the Gordon family, who became richer in love three times over today. Natalie, Deacon and David (in the front row of the picture by their sister Sadie) were adopted today. The joy in their hearts was evident and it was wonderful to watch the brothers and sisters play together, laugh together and support each other.

The McKnights

Marla and George McKnight welcomed a brother and a sister into their hearts three years ago and today the judge made it official. Kaydee, is 3 years old, beautiful and full of spunk. Her older brother asked if he could change his first name, so we’re proud to congratulate eight-year-old A.J. on his very special day.
