Calling Kurn Hattin Home
Kurn Hattin provides a safe, stable environment where, surrounded by caring adults, children receive the nurturing, consistency and structure they need to grow and thrive. Wholly dedicated to meeting these essential needs, Kurn Hattin staff create a warm, welcoming family atmosphere, where children feel a sense of belonging and form strong bonds with others through mutual trust, respect and cooperation.
Children live in small cottages, with a maximum of 11 children per cottage. Houseparents are on duty to provide a caring and structured home environment. Families are strongly encouraged to maintain frequent contact with their children through visits, phone calls and letters.
All of our cottages promote a family atmosphere. Live-in houseparents, who often have families of their own, and relief houseparents supervise cottage living. Our "daily living" program is geared toward the goal of developing healthy, happy, socially successful individuals. From rising in the morning to bedtime, each child's residential experience is filled with meaningful events. Free time, meals, choice of clothes, practicing a musical instrument or completing chores are all part of an important routine.
