This is a big year for Barnardo’s as we celebrate our 150th birthday! Thomas Barnardo started helping abused and neglected children in London in 1866. He believed that all children had the right to achieve their potential – whatever their background. This vision lives on through our core values today. Despite many improvements to the lives of children, sadly many of the barriers around in Thomas Barnardo’s day are still with us.

Balance Centers are one of the approaches Children’s Aid employs to help students focus on learning, resolve conflicts, and develop self-respect as well as respect for their peers, teachers, and staff. With mounting concern about school violence and children’s mental health, these centers offer an approach for turning disruptive experiences into positive opportunities for learning. Both school and Children’s Aid staff can refer students exhibiting difficult behaviors to the Balance Centers, which are open every day after school.
