- The Harpst Center is a residential treatment center where children with severe emotional problems receive professional care. Largely due to abuse and neglect, these children are placed here from their county court systems or other referral sources responsible for children in need of help. For many of these children, the Harpst Center is a last chance to become stable and whole again. In addition, the Harpst Center supervises a community-based therapeutic foster care program.The Murphy Center serves pre-school children from the local community through a partnership with Head Start. The offices of the Polk County Council for Children and Families, The Court Appointed Special Advocate, and the District Office of the “Right from the Start” Medicaid program are all housed on that campus. Over 150 children are in school there daily. The mission to children and to the community continues from humble beginnings and the determination of Sarah Murphy. Today, for many little children, the Murphy Campus is a first chance at education, aftercare services for children completing the residential treatment program, therapeutic wraparound services for children and families, and is developing an array of other community services designed to complete the Murphy-Harpst continuum of care.
