About Us

OUR MISSION IS TO HELP CHILDREN HEAL FROM TRAUMA BY STRENGTHENING THEIR FAMILIES.

Chosen Care, Inc. serves children and families affected by abuse, neglect and loss. Once a child is safely placed in a home, Chosen comes in with our Model of Care, delivered by licensed care managers who
do whatever it takes to equip families with tools to overcome trauma and thrive together.

trauma-informed practitioners intercede by exhausting every resource at their
disposal until our families have a workable plan to follow.

The Need

Children who have suffered maltreatment live in the aftermath of loss and grief. Whether abuse, neglect or abandonment, this trauma actually impacts brain development and how a child relates to the world around him. Often, these children are separated from their first family and placed in an unfamiliar family. Sometimes, they are placed with relatives who have to transition to a parental role. 

Frequently children end up living in their fear brain and acting out. Their behaviors can be very difficult and confusing to the adults trying to love them. 

Our care team not only addresses how to help the children heal, but we equip caregivers with everything the whole family needs to be on a path of healing together.

Who We Serve

Chosen’s telehealth model provides mental and behavioral health services to families impacted by the child welfare system. 

Reunified birth family success.

Birth Parents

Birth parents who are reunified with their children are trying their best to reconnect with their children and stabilize their homes. Chosen gives reunified families the tools they need to heal together.

kinship parent and child

KINSHIP CAREGIVERS

Often, kinship caregivers do not expect to be in this position. When a grandparent or extended family member welcomes a child into their home, Chosen provides resources to help navigate the situation.

foster family healing

FOSTER FAMILIES

Fostering begins with a big heart, but it can be overwhelming. When stressful behaviors emerge in children, foster parents may find themselves wanting to give up. Chosen is here to help you persevere.

ADOPTIVE FAMILIES

Trauma occurs when a child is separated from their birth parents. Adoptive parents may struggle with addressing trauma and attaching to the child. Chosen can help you find connection and healing.

Our Story

Chosen was conceived in the heart of our founder, Jenni Lord, at the start line of a half-marathon. She had the thought that she needed to be running for something bigger than herself. Passionate about vulnerable children, Chosen originally began as a race event to supplement adoption funds under a national nonprofit. 

Soon, the team recognized much deeper familial needs to help children heal and have permanency. Chosen restructured as an independent nonprofit in 2016 and updated its mission to focus on children healing from trauma by strengthening their families.
