Eliada’s mission is Helping Children Succeed.

Eliada’s mission is Helping Children Succeed. We provide a cradle-to-career continuum of services for over 600 children and youth annually. In partnership with families, we meet basic needs and provide positive child and youth development programming to all ages. We also have high-level intervention and prevention services for children and adolescents that focus on social and emotional well-being, life skills development, career readiness, and trauma-informed treatment. Eliada maintains a 5-Star Child Development Center (child care, prek, afterschool, and summer camp), Residential and Day Treatment mental health programs, Foster Care services, and Workforce Development programming.

In Eliada’s 121-year history, the agency has adapted to the needs of the community. Originally an orphanage, Eliada developed Foster Care programming when there was a nationwide shift away from the traditional children’s home model. As mental health issues in children came into greater focus, Eliada also developed state-of-the-art Residential Treatment Facilities and expanded Foster Care services to include Therapeutic Foster Care. As women entered the workforce, Eliada added child care and preschool services. In Eliada’s recent history, we recognized that youth were aging out of Foster Care and failing in traditional post-secondary education. So the organization once again adapted to meet this community need with the Eliada Student’s Training for Advancement Program which provides workforce development programming for this population of youth.

Today, Eliada’s full-service continuum of care includes:

Psychiatric Residential Treatment

Children live at Eliada for up to a year while healing from trauma.

Foster Care and Therapeutic Foster Care

Children live with an Eliada Foster Family while awaiting adoption.


A place for kids to go who have nowhere else to go.   The child welfare system is severely lacking in placements for kids who can't be at home for all sorts of reasons.  The Green Respite program helps fill that gap.


Eliada Students Training for Advancement - ESTA serves transitioning youth, 18-25 years old who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Early Learning

Children in the community can attend our five-star Child Development Center, Prekindergarten, Afterschool, or Summer Camp program.

Thank you so much for your commitment to our community’s vulnerable children.
