ChildSavers was established as the Children's Memorial Clinic nearly 100 years ago in memory of Dr. McGuire Newton, one of Richmond’s first pediatricians. Martha Patteson Bowie (Mrs. Melville C.) Branch connected concerned citizens to create an innovative agency that would help with the “diagnosis and treatment of children for all manner and kind of physical or mental infirmities.” We were one of the first ten child guidance clinics in the United States, and the first in the South, and we are the oldest provider of mental health services for children in the metro Richmond area licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. As our knowledge grows and the community changes, we adopt new models and best practices to meet the needs of children. Today, our mission is to guide our community’s children through life’s critical moments with trauma-informed mental health and child development services.
