Brantwood Children’s Home was founded in 1917 by the Federation of Women’s Club to care for children whose parents were incarcerated. Since that time, Brantwood has evolved into so much more. Today, Brantwood has become a home for abused and neglected children that need one. We foster boys and girls ages 10-20 years old that have not gotten a fair start to life, through no actions of their own, and provide them with the same things that any parent would provide their own children. The basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter are just the beginning to what we would like to offer the children in our care. Not only do we provide our children with a place to live, we try to instill a sense of normalcy in their lives; a normalcy they have rarely had demonstrated to them before. Brantwood becomes a surrogate family for those entering; as our children are encouraged to participate in chores, extra-curricular activities, and family meals. Our goal is simple- to provide a place for the heart to heal and important relationships to blossom.
Our mission is exclusively non-profit and is to operate in the best interest of the community while serving dependent, neglected and/or abused children by providing for and supervising their education, health, and social adjustments into the community.
