Our Mission

To provide opportunities to children, youth and families to become more responsible for their own lives and to strengthen their relationships with others. 

We stabilize children and families in need, strengthen them with tools to overcome challenges, and empower them to take control of their lives.

Highfields was founded in 1962 on the concept that people can change if they have the right opportunities combined with high expectations and positive adult interaction. Since then we have grown from a small residential camp to a multi-purpose, human services organization that serves about 7,000 people each year.
