Our Mission


Eliada’s mission is Helping Children Succeed.

Eliada’s vision is to provide an optimal learning environment that empowers children and their families to succeed. We envision a world where children’s needs are met in a caring environment.

To make this vision a reality, Eliada provides community-responsive, need-oriented care and support for children and families in crisis without regard to race, religion, or national origin. Programs are designed to address the physical, social, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of those in care. Services are offered within the context of the family whenever possible and by residential treatment when necessary. Each year, we care for over five hundred children.

Eliada’s full service continuum includes:

Psychiatric Residential Treatment

Children live at Eliada for up to a year while healing from trauma.

Foster Care and Therapeutic Foster Care

Children live with an Eliada Foster Family while awaiting adoption.

Day Treatment

Children living at home, in a foster home, or at Eliada attend school on campus instead of public schools to better meet their special learning needs.

Transitional Living and Vocational Training

Older children who’ve spent their lives in foster care gain culinary or technology work skills while learning to be self-sufficient adults.

Early Learning

Children in the community can attend our five-star Child Development Center, Afterschool, or Pre-Kindergarten program.
