The Barry Robinson Center has been “Improving the Lives of Youth and Their Families” for over 80 years. This promise to the world has resulted in thousands of lives changed for the better. This is not only good for communities in Virginia, but is just plain good.

Our staff has the opportunity of witnessing first hand the transformation that happens when children are given the clinical help they need. It is our new goal to help more children than ever before – and invite more people to see the amazing things that can be done when you have the opportunity to influence a life for the better.

Help Change Lives of More Children


The Military Courtyard Project

For over 80 years, The Barry Robinson Center has been providing care to children and their families. We are proud that our mission of “Improving the Lives of Children” includes working with the military community. To show our appreciation for the many sacrifices that our military families make, we are renovating our courtyard.

We invite you to join us in honoring our military families by becoming a part of The Barry Robinson Center Courtyard Project. Your participation in this fundraiser will help us to salute those military families who sacrifice daily to serve our community. Our goal for this project is $100,000. We are offering multiple levels of participation and rewards for your participation!
