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.
