The mission of CHRIS 180 (formerly CHRIS Kids) is to heal children, strengthen families, and build community through mental health counseling, training, providing safe housing, and real-world skill building. This summer, we changed our name to CHRIS 180 to more accurately reflect that our clients include individuals of all ages and to focus on our transformational role with those we serve.


CHRIS 180 saves, serves, and protects children, young adults, and families who have experienced trauma to help them change the direction of their lives. CHRIS 180’s award-winning leadership and programs have transformed more than 60,000 lives and we are an acknowledged pioneer among mental health, child advocacy, and family welfare providers.

We believe that potential is a right, not a privilege and we are dedicated to the children, young adults, and families we serve to unlock their potential happiness, health and success despite challenging circumstances, often beyond their control.
