A Message From Our CEO
Child centered and family focused, St. Christopher’s has been supporting those in need of assistance since 1881. Our special services are offered in a nurturing environment by highly skilled professionals who are fully committed to the children and families we serve.
With three beautiful, safe and secure campuses, we offer a wide array of innovative research-based programs designed to address your child’s therapeutic, medical, and educational needs. Important vocational and life skills are seamlessly integrated into your child’s day, and are in keeping with his or her special gifts and talents.
For those of you considering becoming a part of our St. Christopher’s family, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your child’s needs. We look forward to meeting your child and offering you a tour of our campuses.

St. Christopher’s core values define the belief and values that we hope will drive our actions in our quest for a forward-thinking, progressive and cutting-edge organization. These values are an integral part of our culture, and what we strive to achieve and emphasize to the outside community in all endeavors.

We share and are committed to a common vision, and depend on one another throughout the day to further our mission. We believe that meeting a child’s individual needs requires working with her/his family, and the broader community.
