Our Mission

For 80 years Abbott House has provided children to young adults, ages 7 to 23, with a second change at youth—a place of hope and recovery for those who have suffered trauma and abuse.  Without help now, many of these young people perpetuate the cycle of violence and punish themselves indefinitely for the tragedy that was placed on their shoulders. Abbott House and Bridges by Abbott House are programs where young people get another chance to turn the abuse and victimization of their past into experiences they live with, but that do not overwhelm their lives. Abbott House strives to provide premier services for youth and their families.
