We serve Trenton area children — infants through adolescents — who have come into the world with the odds stacked against them.
We serve Trenton area children — infants through adolescents — who have come into the world with the odds stacked against them. Some of Millhill’s families fall within Trenton’s NJ 35% poverty rate and 17% unemployment rate. A few reside in motels assigned to the county’s 1,061 homeless. Our children’s lives have been rocky. Their futures are at serious risk.
Many of our children are referred from the Division of Youth & Family Services (DYFS), the family court system, and hospitals, agencies, and other organizations which assess whether children have been exposed to — or are at risk of — physical, psychological, or sexual abuse and/or neglect.
At Millhill, our children and their families receive integrated services in a tightly woven safety net. At Millhill, they all learn to work together toward a better future.
1. Early care and education for children from struggling families
