EOA Children's House

EOA Children's House Logo | Child Abuse Prevention

EOA Children’s House was founded in 1978 as a program providing services and care to children under the age of five who have been abused, neglected, or face adverse childhood experiences.  EOA Children’s House is one of the nation’s largest long-term programs for child abuse prevention and treatment and the only program of its kind in Arkansas. 

Children who have been abused or neglected typically have delayed development of approximately 18-months, depending on the severity of their trauma.  The goal at EOA Children’s House is to work with each child to achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones so that when they enter Kindergarten, they are at the same developmental level as their peers.

Our program is designed to address trauma through a multigenerational approach. Our whole-family model partners parents or guardians with a trained Family Advocate who meet individually with families on a routine basis to set goals related to self-sufficiency and connect families to supportive services and resources.  In addition, our comprehensive program coordinates with community partners to address health services and therapy needs, including special education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and/or physical therapy services.
