Welcome to

The Barry Robinson Center

For more than 80 years, The Barry Robinson Center has been improving the lives of children and families. As a premier non-profit behavioral health system, The Center offers a residential program for boys and girls, ages 6-17, as well as treatment foster care and other community-based services.

The Center provides a holistic environment that sets children, teens and families on the path to healing. Our staff includes qualified and compassionate therapists, teachers, counselors, doctors, nurses and dietitians. We offer particular expertise in helping children and families serving in the U.S. military. Our 32-acre open college-like campus on the border of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, Virginia, combines modern residential facilities with several original colonial-style buildings dating to 1933. This combination makes it one of the most beautiful and unique residential treatment centers in the region. Our campus provides a safe and serene setting for programs designed to help youth and their families overcome emotional and behavioral difficulties.

We consider all referrals and encourage families to tour the campus and talk with our staff to find out how The Center can help your child.
