What We Do

Children’s Square U.S.A. has a rich history of caring for children from birth to 23 years and their families, meeting their individualized needs, instilling hope and helping restore lives. We teach each child, every day, the values and life skills essential to a successful life – one full of Caring, Contribution and Commitment.

Every day, we provide life-improving programs for more than 1,000 children, youth, and families in Iowa and Nebraska who have behavioral, emotional, and psychiatric needs. These programs, include: counseling, emergency services for children, early childhood care, foster care, and residential treatment and education for children with serious emotional and behavioral disorders.

Please find more information about our numerous programs on our website, along with a list of wish list items for the children and families we serve.
