Tennyson Center for Children is dedicated to helping children who have experienced severe abuse, neglect, and/or trauma so they can bravely, and safely, change their life’s story.

Tennyson Center believes that the spiritual needs of the children and families that we serve are as important as any of their other needs. We are culturally sensitive to each child’s spiritual background. Our Spiritually Integrated Therapy program allows for this work to be woven into the fabric of what we do. 



Spiritually Integrated Therapy helps children and families clarify and develop their own values and find their place in the community.

For the past 112 years, TCC’s trained professionals have empowered generations of children and families by providing a child-centered, customized approach to healing through our community-based, school, and residential programs. The primary goal of all TCC programs is to reintegrate our children back into safe families, supportive schools and vibrant communities.

History

History

More than a century ago, a legacy of caring was born when John and Mary Warren founded Colorado Christian Home as an orphanage in 1904 in Loveland, Colorado. Our history is important to us. The campus may have changed a bit since the early days, but that legacy lives on today at Tennyson Center for Children.

We are one of the Rocky Mountain region’s leading treatment centers for abused, neglected and at-risk youth. We were proud to be the first licensed day treatment program in Colorado back in 1981; we were proud when we moved into our new, state-of-the-art facility back in 1996; and we’re even more proud today to be recognized as a leader in not only the healing and protection of children from abuse and neglect, but also in the efforts to help children with mental health and developmental issues.
