Children are admitted to Hendrick Home between the ages of 5 and 15. The children come from all socio-economic background. The children live in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment designed to facilitate a healthy, normative childhood. Hendrick Home cares for children at no cost to their families. The professional team at Hendrick Home is committed to working with children’s families to provide a collaborative partnership in the best interest of the children.
While at Hendrick Home, the children learn fundamental responsibilities through their performances of daily chores, age-appropriate employment opportunities, and involvement in public school and extracurricular activities. Hendrick Home provides tutoring programs for the children in their homes every week.
When children graduate from high school, they have an opportunity to become part of the After Care program at Hendrick Home. After Care is a program designed to continue emotional, financial, and relational support for children while helping them transition to independent living. Children in the After Care program are assisted with budgeting and financial preparation for eventual independent living. They may pursue higher education or attend a certification program with the aid of the Home’s “After Care” scholarship program.
