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. Today, Adriel provides residential treatment and foster care and adoption services for children.
All of our programs use the Teaching Family Model of Care, an evidence-based practice model that reinforces positive behavior and diminishes negative behavior. Children are empowered to make good decisions for their lives.
Licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health to provide counseling services, Adriel is also accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), an achievement that indicates adherence to “best practice” standards of care. Adriel is a member of the Ohio Association of Child Caring Agencies and is an affiliate of the Teaching Family Association. Read more about our credentials here.
