Unfortunately, not all children get the help or love they deserve, damaging them during their critical formative years. Thompson exists for this very reason - we believe that hope and hard work can heal suffering children. We hope you've found your way here because you share our conviction.
Our work centers on the well-being of children and their families. Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, Thompson is a non-profit organization operating ten distinct campuses, each providing comprehensive education, treatment, and care for children (birth to 18 years) in need.
At Thompson, we do whatever it takes to help strengthen children, families, and communities.
Our mission: Thompson is called to serve children and families through healing, teaching, worship, and play.
Our vision: Thompson will lead children and families into independent and rewarding lives.
Our mission remains constant in spite of the multitude of diverse challenges we face.
