Dover Children's Home

Dover Children’s Home, founded in 1893, is a non-profit intermediate-level treatment program, offering a wide array of services to children in need from all parts of NH.  The agency is designed to provide community-based residential care for youth who have been abused or neglected; are under a CHINS (Child in Need of Services) petition; or who have committed delinquent acts.  The program will often not admit children who are actively fire-setting, displaying uncontrollable aggression, or are unable to understand the treatment interventions utilized by DCH due to cognitive or processing challenges.  DCH is licensed to provide treatment for up to 19 children, ages 10-21.   During the day, 2-3 Adolescent Counselors work with the residents while 2 remain awake all night.
