Mission Statement

Tennyson Center for Children empowers children who have experienced abuse, neglect and trauma to bravely and safely change their life's story.

Organization History

Founded as an orphanage in 1904, the mission of Tennyson Center for Children is to work with children, youth, and their families to overcome a variety of life crises, including abuse and neglect. Tennyson was the first residential and day treatment program for abused children ages five to fourteen licensed in Colorado and has grown to become one of the Rocky Mountain region's leading treatment centers and K-12 schools for emotionally and crisis-affected children and youth. We now provide intensive treatment, therapy and special education for children up to age 18 who have experienced or are at-risk of experiencing physical or sexual abuse, neglect, and emotional trauma. Our services include residential, education, day treatment, sub-acute, respite, assessment, diagnostic, and community-based programs. Total hours of care that Tennyson provided in 2016: 1,004,002.16. That is the equivalent of approximately 114 years. Our Community-Based Services program provided 14,203 hours of care that resulted in 96.3% of kids staying in their homes; 82.3% of kids avoiding hospitalization, and 98% of kids staying in their school.
