The Children’s Home of York was established in 1865 to provide services to the orphans of the York County community. Since then we have transformed to provide a continuum of care that meets the evolving needs of the children and families in our community. The landscape of human service and mental health treatment is rapidly changing and we must be able to respond in kind.

It is more important than ever to cultivate lasting partnerships, engage younger donors, improve brand identity, and develop unique approaches to juvenile mental health support and services. If you want the opportunity to help shape the future of our organization and to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in your community, apply.
