We believe in children!

Welcome to the Episcopal Center for Children! We are a private non-profit day treatment and special education program, accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC), for emotionally troubled children and their families from the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. For over 120 years, The Episcopal Center for Children has been serving children – first as a convalescent home for sick children, then as an orphanage, then as a residential facility for emotionally troubled children and for the last fifty years, as a day treatment program for troubled children.

We believe in children, their strengths and in what they can be, not in their past inadequacies and failures. Our goal is to enable each child to return to public school and the community while being able to re-engage with his or her family and have a real opportunity for a successful, emotionally healthy and a productive future.
