Talitha Koum Institute

“My child, rise up!”

In the Aramaic words of Jesus, “Talitha koum” means “My child, rise up.” For 21 years, their mission has never wavered — to provide the brain development young children need to thrive. TKI’s therapeutic approach 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 Family Partner Program brings an added layer of support to the families of TKI children. Through this program, they partner with parents to develop and fulfill action plans that will achieve their chosen goals. When a child leaves Talitha Koum’s care for public school, a carefully selected mentor or mentoring family walks alongside “from kindergarten to college or career.” Other volunteer opportunities abound. They invite you to come and see. Tours are available by request.
