Over ninety years ago, Griffith Centers for Children, Chins Up was founded by Miss Emily Griffith. She was an educator, a visionary, and an advocate for children. Her mission was to provide children with an education and the opportunity to become self-supporting. To do this, she established a home where children would find shelter, companionship, and sympathetic guidance. Miss Emily’s vision was to inspire children to believe in themselves as a way to overcome their problems. Her vision guided the creation of Griffith Centers for Children, Chins Up’s diverse programs and continually pushes us forward in providing innovative services for all members of our beloved communities.
Your contributions to the general fund ensure that we are able to continue to provide the highest possible quality of care to the kids and families we serve in a state and federal environment that does not fully reimburse our costs to provide this care as a nonprofit.
