Who We Are
Who We Are
Pinwheels symbolize the innocence of childhood. Our name speaks to our philosophy. Pinwheel Place will be a place where every child will feel safe, loved and valued. Children should be playing , riding bikes and imagining a life full of possibilities. We want our home to be a place children are provided the opportunity to know another way.
We will be a place that keeps them safe by making sure their parents receive the services they need so they are ready to take their children home. We will always look out for the best interest of the child.
We will strive to create a positive impact on every child and to hopefully prevent children from experiencing trauma in their young lives. We believe children can learn by example. They can learn other ways of living and in our family style atmosphere the adults will model behaviors.
Everyone has a promise. We believe that every child has a right to that promise, to that future and that future starts with their childhood.
Pinwheel Place will provide a safe place for children in crisis. We will provide residential care and coordinate medical and/or psychological services according to the needs of the child. We will service primarily children from birth to five years old.
We believe that it takes a village to raise a child. We want to form a community of workers, volunteers and children. We want our children to know they are a part of something, to know that the world is not full of darkness but full of light. Life can be bigger and better than they imagined. We want groups to come in and share their talents and become mentors. We want the givers to receive as well as give. We want every child to know they are not alone long after they leave us, they will always be a part of a community.
