Helping Kids Who Need It Most
Tennyson Center for Children provides residential and therapeutic services, as well as a K-12 school for Colorado children ages five to 18. These kids are survivors of severe abuse or neglect, or have significant mental health or developmental issues. We are often seen as a last resort for kids who have nowhere else to go. And we have been helping kids for more than 112 years.
Our treatment programs are extensive and are as varied as the children and families served by Tennyson Center. We provide competent and caring treatment that is child-centered, family-focused and community-based.
“I have always had a passion for helping kids. The children at Tennyson Center have survived abuse and neglect or are overcoming mental health and developmental issues. Every day, I get to witness these children learning how to become kids again. I am grateful for the opportunity to meet their needs and witness their path to healing.” Rod Witte, CEO
