Preserving Families. Since 1915.

The ACH Core Values

In addition to helping children and families through our programs, ACH will strive to leverage our skills and knowledge to shape public policy, opinion, and response to children and families in need.

We believe all children deserve a childhood that provides safety, love, nurturing, fun, and opportunities to learn the skills needed to reach their maximum potential.

We will provide services that are built upon clearly defined intervention models, research, and best practices. Effective programs respond to an identified need and impact it positively.

We understand that a child’s needs are best met in a family environment.  We strive to partner with families and support their efforts to provide environments for children to thrive. We work to secure a family setting when one is unavailable to children.

We strive to learn from our work through thoughtful analysis of our results and methods. We aim to develop knowledge that is helpful to children and families and to share this knowledge with others.

We build upon our Christian foundation in our belief that unconditional love and hope are essential for healing. We recognize and respect the individualized spiritual backgrounds of those we serve and support family efforts to continue in their faith traditions.

We will use our financial and human resources to address the needs of those we serve using cost-effective and transparent practices.

Our programs are designed to prevent child abuse, neglect, and family separation and help heal and treat children already affected by these tragedies. With more than a century of experience working with children, we know that the best way to accomplish our mission is to work with families, whenever possible, to strengthen their ability to care for their children safely.
