Klingberg Family Centers

Klingberg Family Centers is a private, nonprofit multi-service agency offering hope to hundreds of children and families across Connecticut each year. This is accomplished through an array of residential, special education, and community programs designed to help children and families whose lives have been affected by abuse in its various forms, severe family problems, abandonment issues, and emotional/behavioral difficulties. Whenever possible, we strive to work with the entire family to help them provide their children with a safe, nurturing home environment.

Our main campus is located on a beautiful hilltop in a residential section of New Britain. We also offer a wide range of community services from our offices in Hartford, have three group homes in neighboring communities, and operate an Out Patient Clinic in downtown New Britain. 

Our Mission

To help build healing relationships that empower children and families to reach their full potential. 

Beliefs and Aspirations

Klingberg Family Centers believes that each child is precious and deserving of a safe, caring home. We are also dedicated to the belief that “the family” is the best place for youngsters to live, learn and grow. These beliefs motivate our efforts to strengthen, equip and restore families, whenever possible, so that each child may receive the enduring love and guidance they need.Klingberg Family Centers desires to build on the wonderful foundations we have inherited, affirming the best of the traditions given us and striving to close the gaps between principles and practices. 

Klingberg Family Centers aspires to be an organization that engenders the pride and the commitment of our Board of Trustees, staff, volunteers, our community and constituency and the children and families we serve. We seek to create an environment where individuals are given the opportunity to contribute, learn and grow and where they feel respected, treated fairly, listened to and included. We strive to accomplish these goals in an atmosphere of interdependence, teamwork, good humor, love and encouragement.
