Behind every child who believes in their own potential is an adult who believed first. Could that be you?
CHC is seeking to grow our team with passionate professionals who believe that:
  • every child who walks through CHC’s doors is filled with promise and potential (even if they don’t see it themselves).
  • differences are superpowers and kids are superheroes (even when they're in disguise)
  • if a child is struggling, a whole family is struggling, and we can offer them the first glimmer of hope they may have seen in a very long time.

By becoming a part of CHC, you have the unique opportunity to:

  • collaborate with some of the most renowned child and adolescent experts in the country.
  • be an instrument of healing, leading children, teens, and young adults to roads filled with growth, promise, and self-discovery.

At CHC, we believe in the promise and potential of every child, teen, and young adult. Our mission is to transform young lives by providing culturally responsive best-in-class learning and mental health services to families from diverse backgrounds regardless of language, location, or ability to pay. We specialize in ADHD, Learning Differences, Anxiety & Depression, and Autism.

The DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) initiative at CHC is built on three fundamental pillars – Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We at CHC are striving to go beyond these three pillars to build a beloved community as envisioned by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Each of us has different influences and experiences based on our social, economic, and cultural identity.
