The organization is focused on helping students and families find success socially, emotionally, educationally and developmentally through special education and charter schools, school-based mental health services, treatment foster care, autism services, family mental and behavioral health services and workforce development programs.
The Children’s Guild entered the Washington, DC market in 2015 when they opened the TCG DC Public Charter School at 2146 24th Place NE, Washington, DC 20018. The school led by Principal Bryan Daniels has 200+ students and 80 staff members including 26 teachers and five social workers. This unique and free DC public charter school serving grades K-8 has given The Children’s Guild the opportunity to become more involved in the DC community.
“We are proud of our school in DC and excited to move our headquarters to the District to give our senior leadership and staff the ability to advance our mission with direct access to partners, like-minded organizations and donors,” said Jenny Livelli, President and CEO of The Children’s Guild. “It is an honor to advance the vision set forth by the organization’s founders and continue, 70 years later, to expand our services to ensure more children have access to critical therapies and educational resources throughout the Mid -Atlantic region.”
The new headquarters will be located at 1200 1st Street NE, Washington, DC 20002 in the same space as Social Current, a network of more than 1,800 social service organizations. “Social Current is excited to share this new space with The Children’s Guild, a partner in our work to advance policy and practice that creates an equitable society where all people can thrive,” said Jody Levison-Johnson, President and CEO of Social Current, noted. “It’s collaborations like this that bring the social sector together and improve our ability to improve population health and wellbeing as well as our effectiveness as a sector.”
Currently, The Children’s Guild is headquartered in Baltimore, MD and shares the same building as TCG- Transformation Academy. This 12-month, non-public day school for students ages 5-21 whose primary diagnosis is autism has grown since opening in November 2021. With the corporate headquarters moving, the Transformation Academy will now be able to expand to serve more children who have co-existing diagnoses of sensory processing disorder, a specific learning disability, health disability or multiple disabilities. The move will also provide available space for The Children’s Guild Outpatient Mental Health Clinic and the organization’s Treatment Foster Care program, to further expand into the administrative offices in Baltimore, MD.
“As our team prepares for our move to DC, we want to thank everyone in Baltimore for their incredible support over the decades. While our headquarters move, our commitment to our Maryland-based schools and programs remains unwavering despite our change in zip code. ,” Livelli added. “We’re not leaving Baltimore, in fact, we’re actively negotiating with the city and working with Baltimore City Gov’t and Baltimore City Public Schools to expand our programming.”
