The Pettengill House, Inc. is an
award-winning non-profit social service agency for the local community. In
collaboration with our community partners, we have extensive experience in providing
"wrap-around" services to support at-risk individuals, children and
families through education, intervention and a therapeutic system of care.
The Pettengill House, Inc. was
founded in 1994 by a diverse group of local residents and agency
representatives to specifically address the needs of the most at-risk,
underserved children and families. The original goals were primarily prevention
related. However, it immediately became clear that the organization's clientele
were primarily concerned with survival issues of food, clothing, shelter,
health and safety.
Pettengill believes that
individual and family stabilization is best achieved by identifying the level
of need both individually and as a family unit and addressing said needs
"one step at a time". Our primary concerns are the most basic human
needs of food, clothing, shelter, health and safety.
