AH Children's House


Audrey Hepburn Children's House
at Hackensack University Medical Center


The Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund has joined forces with world renowned Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey to build the first Audrey Hepburn Children's House for abused and neglected children.

Under the careful guidance of John P. Ferguson, President and C.E.O of Hackensack University Medical Center and Dr. Marvin I. Gottlieb, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics, the facility offers intervention and treatment in a safe and caring "child friendly" environment. The Children's House provides medical expertise to the many children who are victims of maltreatment and also offer critical mental health services necessary for the aid and recovery of these children and their families.

The $6 million facility, designed by L'Architectura, was funded by federal, state, and private funding.

Dedication of the Audrey Hepburn Children's House was celebrated on October 7, 2002. Advisory Board Member Natalie Portman serves as "Honorary Godmother" of the Audrey Hepburn Children's House.
