it treats its children


Give a Child a Start

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow,

What our families say

If there is one thing I could tell the world it would be this: as long as Davis House exists, there is a safe place for a child to disclose what has happened to him or her and the sooner you reach out to them the better. Real help exists at Davis House.

We are thankful for the kindness we were shown. It helped ease the burden of a hard situation. Davis House is here to help kids if there is ever an issue that they needed them. Thanks for your time. I appreciate there are places like this in place for kids that need it.
