About Children’s Bureau, Inc
Children’s Bureau, Inc. is a private nonprofit that has served children and families since 1851 and we’re here because many families need help to overcome the challenges that sometimes lead to unhealthy behaviors and threaten a child’s well-being.
We offer an array of human services to Indiana children and families. Guided by our vision of a healthy family for every child, highly-trained case managers identify and address issues that tear families apart. They do so in different ways:
Prevent – Empower families with professional support and community resources to eliminate issues that lead to entry into the child welfare system.
Intervene – Work with families who find themselves in the “system” to accomplish the required goals to keep their children.
Protect – Recruit and strengthen foster and adoptive homes.
Support – Mentor older youth transitioning from foster care to independent living.
