We envision a world in which every child is safe and healthy.
We strengthen the lives of children by enhancing their mental health and physical well-being. DePelchin Children's Center supports and sustains children and the families who care for them.
We provide comprehensive services focused on ensuring all children are part of safe, caring homes. We deploy evidence-based practices and strategies to prevent maltreatment, preserve healthy families, and bring healing to children who have experienced trauma by enhancing their physical health and mental well-being. Founded in 1892, DePelchin is a nonprofit organization with locations throughout Houston and across Texas and gratefully receives support from individuals, foundations, corporations, government grants and the United Way.
