Who We Are
Founded as an orphanage in 1916, Spofford has evolved into a leading provider of preventative and therapeutic treatment services for children who are suffering the effects of physical or sexual abuse, neglect or early onset mental illness. These are not problem children; rather, they are innocent survivors who need our help. Learn more about our services.
How You Can Help
Volunteer opportunities at Spofford range from one-time efforts to ongoing mentoring opportunities.
Your generous donations enable Spofford to respond to the needs of troubled children and families.
Through our partnership with Giving the Basics and their donations of necessary hygeine supplies, we are better able to care for and nurture our children. Thank you!
