The Children’s Study Home is a charitable non-profit organization dependent on donations to fulfill its mission of improving the lives of at-risk children, youth and families in Springfield, MA and Cape Cod. Support from our community has been essential to The Children’s Study Home since its inception, and many of our programs would not exist today, but for the support we receive. Construction of new facilities at Mill Pond for both our school and the SHARP I residence was supported by over $1.5 million in donated funds. This community effort made the project possible, and our community support continues to support our clients and our programs.
While most of our programs receive funding from government sources, those funds do not meet the demands of our clients in the community. Often, our funding leaves us with a 10-20% funding gap in meeting the critical needs of our clients. For these essential funds, we are dependent on the local community in our service area, and we generate support through special events, gifts, foundation requests and fundraising to our many supporters in the community.
Memorial Brick Program
The Children’s Study Home is over 150 years old, and in celebration of this milestone, we’re proud to announce the launch of our Memorial Brick Fundraising Program!

Sweet Dreams Sponsorship Program
Sign up to purchase comforters, duffle bags, posters, pictures or other bedding. When that child transitions out of the program, those items will be theirs to keep.
The goal of the Sweet Dreams program is to have personal items waiting for youth when they arrive at their program to give them a true home, not just a place to live.
Sponsor a bedroom and change the experience of a youth in amazing ways! Learn more here.
