Welcome to

The Children's Study Home






Since 1865, we have been caring for children and families who are at-risk in our communities. As the needs of the community have evolved over the past 140 plus years, our services have changed to meet new demands. Today, we continue to provide the quality of care and concern that we have always been recognized for in our communities.

The Children's Study Home serves children and families throughout the Greater Springfield and Cape Cod regions. Through a variety of residential, educational and family services, we continuously expand and adapt to better meet the needs of those we serve.
