Founded in 1883, Northwood Childrens Services has provided a brighter future for thousands of children. Its tradition of compassionate service has made Northwood the program of choice for the care and treatment of children with emotional, behavioral and learning disabilities. Northwood Childrens Services is a private, not for profit, tax exempt agency that provides professional care, education, and treatment for boys and girls with emotional, behavioral, and learning disabilities. Northwood offers residential and day treatment, diagnostic and assessment services, family mental health services, and therapeutic foster care. Children in treatment at Northwood attend school at the Merritt Creek Academy (located on our West Campus) and Chester Creek Academy (located on our Main Campus). Special Education teachers from our local school district complement our staff.
