About Us


Founded in 1920 by the McCormick family, we’ve been giving a new start to at-risk kids at families for nearly a century!

Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, we work with the state, churches, and other organizations. We provide services throughout central Maryland.


Over the year’s we’ve served over 20,000 kids in famlies and communities, versus institutional settings, confident that it’s best for healthy growth and development.

Our Vision

A safe, nurturing family for every child. A supportive, thriving community for every family.
