Programs: Watson Children's Shelter provides a safe, nurturing home for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis. With two beautiful homes, welcoming 16 children in each, children are welcomed by caring, professional staff who provide support, normalcy, safety and ensure children receive medical, dental, therapeutic or other needed services within our community.The average stay is 60 to 90 days while a more permanent arrangement is secured. Children attend school, do homework, play games, read stories, celebrate each other's birthdays. They are given the opportunity to be kids, in a safe, nurturing home. None of this is possible without support from individual contributions, sponsorships, in-kind donations, special events, and foundation grants.
