History

   

Wedgwood began in 1960 as two separate, unrelated organizations: Christian Youth Homes for girls and Wedgwood Acres Christian Home For Boys. Both were started with private funding by individuals with a heart for helping hurting kids.

They merged ten years later to form Wedgwood Acres-Christian Youth Homes. Click to view a list of our Board Members and Leadership from the 1960's and 1970's.

In 2002, the organization was renamed Wedgwood Christian Services to reflect the full continuum of care that we offer.

Today, Wedgwood continues as a private, non-profit human service agency dependent on private citizens to carry out our mission of reaching out to hurting youth. Wedgwood has provided comprehensive treatment for youth and families since 1960. We serve children, adults, and families from across the state.

Youth services include residential treatment, foster care, independent living, in-home intervention, outpatient counseling, and prevention. Our philosophy of care offers grace, promotes healing, and encourages learning.
