Talitha Koum Institute

“My child, rise up!”

In the Aramaic words of Jesus, “Talitha koum” means, “My child, rise up.” For 20 years, our mission has never wavered—to provide the brain development young children need to thrive. TKI’s intervention addresses cognitive development, sensory integration and social-emotional health within the context of nurturing relationships. The weekday, year-round program builds neural pathways that can last a lifetime. Therapeutic care is also offered to foster children who have either been adopted or are in the process of being adopted so that a forever home is more confidently achieved. Talitha Koum’s new Family Partner Program brings an added layer of support to the families of TKI children. Through the process of Family Coaching, we partner with parents to develop and fulfill action plans that will achieve their chosen goals. When a child leaves our care for public school, a carefully selected mentor or mentoring family walks alongside “from kindergarten to college or career.” Other volunteer opportunities abound. We invite you to come and see. Tours are available by request.
