Find the right program for your child




Welcome to Woodbourne Center

An Integrated System of Care for Youth & Families

Woodbourne provides an integrated system of care for children and their families involved in the child welfare system, the juvenile justice system, and in mental health programs.

A private nonprofit organization, Woodbourne has provided treatment services to children for more than two centuries. Today, we continue to support and care for children in difficult circumstances with a program mix that is both current and responsive to those we serve.

Children are linked to a compassionate chain of adults who work together to provide an integrated system of care to children and families.

Woodbourne offers an array of high-quality services for children and families. It is our goal to give children the tools and skills they need to successfully return to their homes and communities.

Woodbourne Center is accredited by the Joint Commission (TJC) and licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Department of Human Resources. The Woodbourne School is accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education.
