Serving our community for 95 years.
Judson Center is a non-profit human service agency that provides compassionate, comprehensive services to children and families throughout southeast Michigan.
Since opening our doors as the Detroit Baptist Children’s Home in 1924, we have grown to provide services to over 10,000 children, adults, and families each year. Since then, the agency has evolved into a comprehensive, multi-faceted, community based human service center — one that has been nationally recognized for fostering independence through innovative programs, and for empowering children of all ages and their families to live the best lives possible. We have been changing fates and restoring childhoods for children who have been abused and neglected, and others who are challenged by developmental disabilities, severe emotional impairments and autism spectrum disorder.
Judson Center has remained responsive to these and other community needs by providing a range of innovative and quality services. We are a resource for healing and a leader in human services that delivers brighter futures for those we are privileged to serve.
To provide expert, comprehensive services in southeastern Michigan that strengthen children, adults and families impacted by abuse and neglect, autism, developmental disabilities, and mental health challenges so they are successful in their communities.
We dream of a day when all children and adults are safe and have loving, strong families with the community support they need to make a unique contribution to the world.
