At Child Saving Institute, our mission is "responding to the cry of a child" but it is our VISION that guides us as we work to give the children we serve safe, happy childhoods. Our vision is that all children have homes where hope is kindled and dreams can be achieved. Despite many changes over our long history, children's safety and well-being has remained our primary focus, and we currently serve more than 2,700 children and their families each year.
