 Our Focus

Children, ranging in age from infants to eighteen years, and families at risk of separation for any reason are the focus of our services; that may include the children and families in the planning stages of reunification. Children are best cared for by their families - to foster a healthy environment for children we offer support and services to their families as well as to individual children. Permanency, safety and well-being for children guide the direction of our services.

Our Organization

Governed by a 15 member Board of Directors, selected to geographically represent Mercer County, the Society is supported by a dedicated group of individuals that include Auxiliary members and volunteers.
