Alee Children's Shelter
If you know a child who is being abused or neglected, call
Child Protective Service at
The Alee Children’s Shelter is an emergency receiving home for children ages birth to seventeen who are victims of abuse and/or neglect. Child Protective Services (CPS), a division of Department of Public Health and Social Services, places these children in our care.
At the Alee Shelter, children are warmly welcomed and treated with respect. The shelter provides surrogate parenting with 24-hour care to children.
• Promote healing in children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
• Prevent unnecessary separation of siblings when they must be removed from their home.
• Enable CPS to make better foster home matches
Therapeutic play and positive adult role models are available.
Staff evaluates the children's development and encourages play activities designed to promote acquisition of age-appropriate physical and cognitive skills.
Alee provides books, games and tools to enhance the child's development potential.
Playground equipment, toys and videos are provided under adult supervision.
Good housekeeping, hygienic healthy care, nutrition, and parenting skills are taught to older children.
Coping skills, help with homework, assertiveness skills and stress management are also offered.
Better communication skills, building self-esteem and enhancing knowledge of self-worth help the youth to improve their interpersonal relationships.
Staff assists children in obtaining referrals, transporting and accompanying them when appropriate.
In conjunction with the CPS worker, Alee staff members work with community agencies to obtain the services needed by the children placed in our care.
