Consistent with the founder’s vision, was his keen awareness of the need for philanthropic support. Thus began a long tradition that continues today, making the Allendale Association a unique and special place that offers children a chance to heal and a reason to hope. Children who have lived a past of unspeakable heartbreak due to abuse, neglect and/or childhood mental illness have been transplanted into an environment that ensures safety, instills hope and creates abundant opportunity for healing and change. While children do come to us with dark pasts…those pasts need not define their future. With time, excellent care and innovative treatment Allendale continues to help kids-in-need…learn. grow. heal. The Tradition of Care Remains & Stories of Amazing Resilience & Recovery Unfold at Allendale Daily Today Allendale Proudly Serves Over 800 Children, Youth & Their Families Annually They come from all walks of life. These children, often victims of abuse, neglect or severe mental and/or behavioral health problems, come to Allendale with the devastating experiences of failure in the classroom, misunderstanding in the home and isolation in the community. Helping these children to heal and prepare for a brighter future requires highly sophisticated therapeutic programs and services.
