Five Acres' services are family centered and individually-focused.  Five Acres is dedicated to finding permanent homes, strengthening family ties, ensuring safety and creating well-being for all the children we serve. Programs continueally evolve to meet community needs. A “permanency vision” is  embraced in every area of children’s welfare to ensure that every child served by Five Acres has a permanent, lifelong connection to a caring adult and a stable, permanent home with a “forever families”.  Eighty-nine percent of children on campus and 90% those in our foster care have established what promises to be lifelong connections.
