About Us

Children’s Village is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Children’s Residential Care facility. We operate two residential homes and a Counseling and Education Center and serve girls ages 0 to 17 and boys ages 0 to 12. Children are placed here by the state, through the Department of Health and Welfare, as well as by families unable to provide adequate care as a result of a severe crisis.

2022 is our 32nd year of service to our community, Children’s Village is a trauma responsive safe haven, restoring trust and hope for children and families who experience abuse, neglect or are in crisis. As a 24-hour residential facility, we are fully staffed at all times to meet the needs of all children, including those with complex behaviors rooted in trauma.

Children’s Village is also one of the few Qualified Residential Treatment Programs (QRTP) in all of Idaho for youth within the foster system. A QRTP is a specific category of non-foster family home setting, for which public child welfare agencies must meet detailed assessment, case planning, documentation, judicial determinations and ongoing review and permanency hearing requirements for a child to be placed. We are federally accredited through CARF.

Children’s Village is a trauma-informed care facility that recognizes the need for specialized care of vulnerable children and utilizes Trust Based Relational Intervention as our guiding philosophy.

Our History

In 1983, a Coeur d'Alene principal made a promise to two siblings suffering from abuse: "I will build you a home to keep you safe". Seven years later, the Children's Village opened.
