Adriel has a long and rich history of caring for children in need. Founded as the Mennonite Children's Home in 1896, Adriel's mission has always focused on serving those children who either have no family or whose family environment is not safe or healthy. As the needs of children and families have changed, Adriel has adapted and expanded its services to meet them.

Adriel has a strong continuum of care that ensures that children with varying treatment needs can be served. The foster care and adoption program, the family preservation program, and residential program all focus on positive reinforcement to reshape problem behaviors as well as empowering young people to make healthy life decisions.

Treatment planning is an active and ongoing process that takes into account the needs of the youth and consideration for family relationships. The ultimate treatment goal for all children served by Adriel is to return them to permanent and stable family life.
