We are about the quality treatment of children at Heartland Behavioral Health Services. We believe in returning children to families or the community as quickly as possible. A big institution isn’t the ideal place for kids, but Heartland is a safe, positive environment where they can receive the treatment they need. We offer services and specialty programs that other residential programs do not. Our focus is to change the lives of children and families.
More Than 100 Years of Caring for Kids
Since its original construction in 1889, our facility in Nevada, Mo., has been dedicated to caring for children. Originally built by the Christian Church as a university, Franciscan nuns purchased the building sight unseen for $10,000 in 1892.
A Labor of Love
The sisters arrived in Nevada on Sept. 3, 1893, and opened a day school when a man named Hogan was unable to care for his children due to the death of his wife. Hogan approached the sisters to take in his children. These were the first of many children raised at what was soon to become St. Francis Orphanage.
