While Bokenkamp Children’s Shelter is state licensed to care for children ages 0-17, it currently serves children between the ages of 12 and 17.

The children we serve at this facility receive lifesaving support, including food, clothing, shelter, case management, education and clinical, medical and spiritual care. Upbring makes sure that children at Bokenkamp receive 24-hour support and supervision. Our goal is to encourage their personal and academic development and empower them with the skills and resources they need to have productive lives once they are reunified with family members or a sponsor.
