so we can help even more

children lead successful lives





Grow - verb \'grō\: to become larger; to increase in size; to become better or improved

Dear Friends,

As defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, The Children’s Home fits that definition. During the past 12 months, we

have grown in size and quality, and we are confident we will continue to grow in the years to come. In this year’s Annual

Report, you will read about our new initiatives, service expansion and accomplishments.

You will see how we have served more than 7,800 children and families, and you will gain a deeper picture of some of the

children with whom we have worked. You will experience the transformation of James, Grayson, Kayla and Soroya’s lives.

And you will come to appreciate that each child’s potential can be realized if given the specialized support The Children’s

Home provides.

Teacher Jacqueline Welsh plays Sight Words

Bingo with students in the Lower School to

help them with vocabulary and reading.

You will see our commitment to quality in the stories we’ve shared and in the fact that 95 percent of our parents would

recommend our services to others. You will understand how we have differentiated ourselves through the growth in our

autism, early childhood day treatment, nutrition and health care programs. And you will meet three staff members who represent

the skills, talents and dedication of our 320 (and growing!) employees.

We are understandably proud of our children, our services and our staff. But we also know we couldn’t do it without you

– our donors, volunteers and other supporters. On behalf of the children we serve, thank you for your continuing support.

The Children’s Home of Cincinnati ANNUAL REPORT | 2015-16


For more than 150 years, The Children’s Home of Cincinnati

has transformed the lives of vulnerable children, helping to

launch them on successful life journeys.



Our treatment and education programs

help more than 7,800 children

overcome their social, behavioral and

learning challenges. We provide those

programs to children who live in 177

neighborhoods and communities

across Greater Cincinnati, improving

the lives and futures of the children,

their families and communities.

Although our Madisonville campus

is the hub of our organization, our

services also are offered at schools

and health centers and in children’s

homes. Our private, nonprofit

organization is no longer a home for

children in the literal sense, but a

home for a variety of services that

help children develop skills and build

program that treats young children

with severe behavior and

emotional problems is among

the fastest-growing programs at The

Children’s Home.

The Early Childhood Day Treatment

program provides therapy in small

groups to children who have inappropriate

behavior in their homes, schools

and community settings. The goal: to

help them progress so much that they

no longer need our services.

If they can be treated early enough,

more severe problems can be avoided

as they grow older, such as involvement

with the juvenile justice system.

“Intervening early is the key,” said

Stacey Cornett, senior director of our

campus-based services. “That translates

into better outcomes for these


The effectiveness of the half-day

program – for children 3 to 8 years old

– has been rising. Three years ago, 71

percent of the students could return to

their regular environment. In the last

year, 90 percent have returned. “That

means we’ve been able to help a greater

percentage of children meet their full

potential,” Cornett said.

A key to the program’s success is

that the staff has been increasingly

reaching out to the children’s families

and schools, helping the families and

schools to provide consistency in the

way the children are taught to manage

their emotions and behavior.

To meet the demand for the program,

two more classrooms have been built

for the program – the fifth and sixth

classrooms – allowing us to serve up

to 32 more children. The program now

has space for 96 kids.

The program has been so successful

that we’ve created a related full-day

program at the request of the Cincinnati

Public Schools. The Integrated Therapeutic

Classroom program provides

therapy as well as the added component

of education in group settings for

children 5 to 8 years old.

To handle the demand, The Children’s

in our students with autism is remarkable,”

said John Banchy, president and

CEO of The Children’s Home. “With

our expansion, more teens will be able

to receive our services, reaching goals

they never thought attainable.”

When they arrived at The Children’s

Home, many of our students with

autism had modest goals of living with

their parents after graduation. But

here, they learn social skills, life skills

and more in an academic setting, giving

them the confidence to live on their


“They can actually see a future that

isn’t dependent on other people,” said

Our newest programs for autism


• Transitional services — helping

young adults to bridge the years

from high school to adulthood with

classroom instruction, hands-on

learning and community outings.

No one else in Greater Cincinnati

is providing such a service now.

• Ready 2 Work! — A 10-week paid

summer internship program, providing

hands-on job experience.

Interns are trained and supervised

by one-on-one job coaches.

After being launched in 2011, the

school is now serving more than 50

students. It’s growing because families

are hearing about the transformation

our students are making. Initially, some

students don’t want to be involved in

their Individualized Education Program

meetings, designed to customize their

educations. By the time they leave,

many are leading the sessions.

Grayson Has Made Great Strides

Before he came to The Children’s

Home, autism had made it difficult

for Grayson to succeed in a

typical high school.

“I struggled a lot with making friends.

I’d be sitting alone at lunch. . .No one

would want to sit next to me on the

bus. Everyone would pretty much

avoid me at all costs. The most difficult

part was the bullying. I was frequently

teased, pushed around a lot, made fun

of. . .I didn’t fit in much so I came to

The Children’s Home.

The first day I came, it was really

nice. People were generous, kind and

accepting. I liked how people would

just come up to me and say hi and

introduce themselves. I felt like I really

fit in. It’s very enjoyable to have people

that know how you feel and then they

can adjust you to your surroundings.

Throughout my experience here,

I’ve gotten to learn how to

maintain a job, how to go

through interviews, how to

manage a budget, work with

money. . . I love that I have these

new skills.

I got to meet a young

man named Antonio.

He became one of my

best friends here.

Our students also are making

friends — some for the first time. In a

typical high school, many of them feel

isolated. “For the families,” Tipkemper

said, “the most powerful thing is seeing

their kids being part of a community.’’

And over time, I’ve gotten to meet his

friends and they were really accepting

as well. . . I would say this has been

a life-changing experience. I feel like

The Children’s Home High School has

helped me a lot in many ways.”

In May 2016, Grayson, now 18,

graduated from The Children’s

Home High School for

Students with Autism and

Related Disorders. Since then,

he’s moved back to Loveland

High School to take courses to

prepare him for college. He

attributes his success to

The Children’s Home.

to expand it to other school-based

Said Lancaster, “We’re planting the

seeds for good nutrition.”

Nutrition Council

Becomes Part of

The Children’s Home

What happens when you take

a 152-year-old children’s

organization, add a small

nonprofit and stir thoroughly? You get

a program to promote healthy eating

that’s able to serve more children in

even more ways.

That’s what happened when The

Children’s Home acquired the Nutrition

Council. Until this year, the 42-year-old

Council had been independent. But

both nonprofits recognized that the

Council would be stronger as part of

The Children’s Home.

A year later, the Council has achieved

more than what Lauren Lancaster, its

director, believed it could accomplish

by now, thanks to the backing of The

Children’s Home. “Combining our

efforts has substantially expanded our

capacity to provide nutritional education

and advocacy to the community.”

For the first time, the Council has a

teaching kitchen, created by renovating

space in the Emery Building on The

Children’s Home Madisonville campus.

It has a stove, oven, sink, refrigerator,

tables, chairs and more. Campers from

Camp-I-Can, the summer day camp of

The Children’s Home, have been introduced

to nutrition education there.

And new mothers have been able to

improve their cooking skills there in a

series called “Lunch and Learn,” offered

through Every Child Succeeds.

Overall, the Council educates children

and their families about healthy

eating, providing the knowledge, skills

and motivation that people need to

make healthy food choices. Among its

outside partners are early childhood

programs, schools, businesses, churches

and other community organizations,

helping it reach some of the region’s

most vulnerable children.

The acquisition of the Council was

natural for The Children’s Home, a continuation

of an effort started in 2011

Life is better for Kayla and her

Previously, Kayla had been crying

every day after school. Bullying and

on her.

Revenue and Expenses Increased; Employee Turnover Decreased

Revenue of The Children’s Home increased in fiscal 2016 by nearly 9 percent as we served more children in more ways than

ever before. Leading the way were our behavioral health and education programs, which grew by a combined $1.3 million.

We also initiated an effort to reduce employee turnover while enhancing employee recruitment. After an extensive compensation

market analysis, we increased the salary range and retirement benefits for key positions, increasing our expenses by more

than $1.3 million. It worked: Turnover decreased by more than 25 percent.

We also continued to invest in our facilities and equipment, spending $1.6 million, which included more space for our Early

Childhood Day Treatment program and Autism High School, creation of the Levine Family Health Center and more.

New Levine Family

Health Center Makes It

Easier for Children to

Receive Care

The Children’s Home has taken

another major step in caring for

children: We’ve opened a health

care center on our Madisonville Campus,

combining behavioral and physical

health care in one location.

For years, we’ve been known for our

behavioral health care. But with research

showing the strong relationship

between mental and physical health

problems, The Children’s Home decided

in 2011 to take steps to integrate our

care. The Levine Family Health Center

is a continuation of that effort.

“Families are excited about the

convenience of the Health Center,” said

Barbara Terry, The Children’s Home

chief operating officer. “And we’re

excited too because we’ve been able

to remove logistical barriers to medical

care. The net result – the health of our

children is improving.”

Busy lives, transportation problems

and the challenges in navigating complex

health-care systems have prevented

many families from obtaining adequate

medical care for their children.

But now, they’re receiving medical care

when they’re at The Children’s Home

for other services.

Neighborhood children and students

at several nearby schools also are using

the Health Center. No one is being

turned away.

The Health Center, which has four

full exam rooms and a lab, is located in

our 5051 Building on the Duck Creek

Road side of our campus. The Cincinnati

Health Department is staffing it with

a nurse practitioner, registered nurse

and medical assistant. A physician is

making regular visits.

We’re projecting that the Health

Center will have more than 1,000 visits

in its first year.

The major donors who helped to pay for the Levine Family Health Center’s renovations

and medical equipment include the Edward L. Levine Family Foundation, Interact for

Health and the Heidt Family Foundation.

We Honored Stellar

Employees For Their

Dedication to Children

The Children’s Home presented its annual

Presidential Awards to three employees

who provided exemplary service. Here are

excerpts from the nominations, written by

fellow employees:

Melanie Murphy, a partial

hospitalization therapist, has “excellent

clinical skills and a natural ability to

connect with children. Her

level of commitment and

unwavering passion for

enhancing children’s lives

is evident. She often is

the first person at work

each day and the last person

to leave. She has provided support to

children outside of work hours, including

weekends. Again and again, she has made

accurate clinical decisions during crises,

resulting in a child avoiding serious injury

to himself or others.”

New leaders of The Children's Home are John Banchy (center), president and CEO, and Lawrence A. Glassman (right), board chair. Michael Coombe became past chair.



For 152 years, The Children’s Home has been known for its leadership.

Now, that strong leadership is continuing but with some new faces.

Lawrence A. Glassmann, who has served on the

board of trustees for five years, is the new board chair.

Glassmann, of Indian Hill, owns The Glassmann Law Firm,

devoted solely to resolving legal disputes. Previously, he

pursued a varied legal career as in-house and outside counsel,

including serving as vice president of Aventis Pharmaceuticals

and the senior vice president and general counsel

of Duramed Pharmaceuticals.

John Banchy became president and chief executive officer

of The Children’s Home after serving as chief operating

officer. Before joining The Children’s Home, Banchy had

been area director of an eight-state region for a national

nonprofit and served in leadership roles for a Fortune 100


Banchy has restructured the leadership team with the goal

of efficiently managing growth and providing strong support

for employees:

Barbara Terry became chief operating officer. She joined The

Children’s Home in 2013 as vice president of health care integration.

Joe Carolin became chief financial officer. He previously served

as finance director for The Children’s Home, joining the staff in


Roderick Hinton became vice president of advancement and

community engagement. He spent 20 years on the staff of St.

Xavier High School, most recently as assistant vice president for

enrollment management and strategic initiatives.

Amy Avera became vice president of human services. She has

more than 25 years of experience in human resources, including

with The Business Backer, a financial services company in Blue Ash,

and MedPlus, Inc., a software development company in Mason.

Ronda Gadd, an autism behavior

support specialist, is “a jack of all trades,

especially when it comes

to her tremendous skill

in the application of the

Teaching-Family Model

(the approach used by

The Children’s Home to

care for children). She is

relied on for her expertise, and is focused

on implementing individualized, effective

interventions. She is constantly challenging

our team to be proactive, rather than

reactive, and to consider all of the variables

that impact the performance of our

students. She demonstrates flexibility,

creativity, resourcefulness, energy, adaptability,

the ability to think on her feet and,

the most important quality, a commitment

to teamwork.”

Rick Reinhart, a maintenance

supervisor, “is one of the nicest and most

helpful people I have met

at The Children's Home.

He is always happy to

help out with anything

that comes up, whether

it's a simple maintenance

issue, much appreciated

ride across campus in a golf cart or anything

that we need to carry out our work

for our clients. He makes me smile when

I see him, even if it’s just a wave across

campus or when he’s chasing us out of the

building during a fire drill. His compassion

and commitment to excellence ensures

that The Children's Home is a safe and

welcoming environment for clients, families,

visitors and staff.”

Soroya holds her son, Gabriel. They are joined by her older

son, Micah, and Lora Kurtz, family education support specialist

with Every Child Succeeds, who provided services to

Soroya when Micah was a baby.

Soroya Achieved

Her Dream

As a teen-age mother in high school, Soroya

could have been overwhelmed trying to care

for her infant son.

But she wasn’t alone. She had a home

visitor, Lora Kurtz, from The Children’s Home,

who gave her tips for raising Micah and

provided other support and encouragement.

Every time she’d see Lora drive up, she’d get

excited. “It would just pick me up.”

That was more

than a decade ago.

Soroya, now 30, has

a master’s degree.

She is married with

three children. And

Micah is an Honor

Roll student.

“You made me a

more confident,



Even more

amazing, thanks to

Lora’s positive influence, Soroya has achieved

her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher,

which means Soroya is helping to provide the

best possible start for other children too.

The Children’s Home provided Lora’s visits

through its Every Child Succeeds program. The

program offers home visits for first-time atrisk

mothers, helping them create a nurturing,

healthy environment for their children. The

Children’s Home has the largest Every Child

Succeeds program in Hamilton County, serving

more than 1,800 families since becoming an

Every Child Succeeds partner.

Soroya hasn’t forgotten the role Lora, a

family education support specialist, and The

Children’s Home played. “You made me a more

confident, competent parent,” she told Lora recently.

“The lessons I learned with Every Child

Succeeds, I’ve used with all my children.”


The Children’s Home of Cincinnati ANNUAL REPORT | 2015-16


“My mom told me I need to keep up

the good work at school.”

James Has

Become A


By the time 2016 had arrived, James had become a

leader among his peers, earning awards for his behavior.

It was a remarkable transformation. When he arrived

at The Children’s Home two years earlier, James was

known for physically and verbally lashing out at staff

and other students. He would leave the classroom for

long periods of time, refusing to comply with directions.

“When I started getting in trouble, I started

realizing I had to stop doing this,” he said.

Teachers used various approaches

to help him control his anger, including

sports and walks. He built positive

relationships with staff, which led to his

willingness to learn and practice appropriate

behaviors. He has been able to handle

his anger in an appropriate manner and

maintain good grades.

Now, his mother is proud of him again.

“My mom told me I need to keep up the

good work at school and doing what I’ve

been doing.”
