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.
Chosen serves families impacted by the child welfare system. Our Mission is to help children heal from trauma by strengthening families. Our Model of that Care focuses on helping caregivers develop healthy attachment to their children with the ultimate goal of healing and thriving together.
When children experience trauma in the child welfare system, meeting their needs can be difficult. Histories of abuse and neglect leave them hurt, lonely, and vulnerable. But there is hope. Chosen helps caregivers understand the trauma and gives access to trauma-responsive tools so healthy familial attachment can take place.
Chosen provides transformative mental and behavioral health services to families who have been impacted by the child welfare system.
Chosen provides families with the resources needed to mitigate the short and long-term effects of trauma.
Birth parents who are reunified with their children are trying their best to reconnect with their child and stabilize their home. Chosen gives reunified families the tools they need to heal together.
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.
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.
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.
Chosen was founded in 2009 and restructured in 2016 as an independent 501(c)(3). Since inception, Chosen has evolved to meet the emotional and mental health needs of vulnerable children and their families.
Chosen has worked with this population since 2009, originally under a national nonprofit. Chosen was restructured as an independent nonprofit in 2016 and has existing licensed social work staff and educators who provide personalized case management and counseling.
Throughout our history, Chosen has seen zero dissolutions/disruptions. This means that since 2016, no child has been returned to the child welfare system after working with Chosen for 6+ months. This is in stark contrast to the general population, in which an estimated 32% of children are returned to the system.
