GROWING

so we can help even more 

children lead successful lives

THE CHILDREN’S HOME OF CINCINNATI

2015-16 ANNUAL REPORT



Dear Friends,

As defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, The Children’s Home fits that definition.  During the past 12 months, we 

have grown in size and quality, and we are confident we will continue to grow in the years to come.  In this year’s Annual 

Report, you will read about our new initiatives, service expansion and accomplishments.

You will see how we have served more than 7,800 children and families, and you will gain a deeper picture of some of the 

children with whom we have worked.  You will experience the transformation of James, Grayson, Kayla and Soroya’s lives. 

And you will come to appreciate that each child’s potential can be realized if given the specialized support The Children’s 

Home provides.  

You will see our commitment to quality in the stories we’ve shared and in the fact that 95 percent of our parents would 

recommend our services to others.  You will understand how we have differentiated ourselves through the growth in our 

autism, early childhood day treatment, nutrition and health care programs.  And you will meet three staff members who rep-

resent the skills, talents and dedication of our 320 (and growing!) employees.  

We are understandably proud of our children, our services and our staff.   But we also know we couldn’t do it without you 

– our donors, volunteers and other supporters.  On behalf of the children we serve, thank you for your continuing support.

Sincerely,

John Banchy

President & CEO

OUR PROGRAMS REACH 

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN

Our treatment and education pro-

grams help more than 7,800 children 

overcome their social, behavioral and 

learning challenges. We provide those 

programs to children who live in 177 

neighborhoods and communities 

across Greater Cincinnati, improving 

the lives and futures of the children, 

their families and communities. 

Although our Madisonville campus 

is the hub of our organization, our 

services also are offered at schools 

and health centers and in children’s 

homes. Our private, nonprofit 

organization is no longer a home for 

children in the literal sense, but a 

home for a variety of services that 

help children develop skills and build 

confidence.

For more than 150 years, The Children’s Home of Cincinnati 

has transformed the lives of vulnerable children, helping to 

launch them on successful life journeys.

EARLY CHILDHOOD 

TREATMENT 

PROGRAM EXPANDS

More Children Experience Successful Outcomes 

program that treats young chil-



dren with severe behavior and 

emotional problems is among 

the fastest-growing programs at The 

Children’s Home.

The Early Childhood Day Treatment 

program provides therapy in small 

groups to children who have inappro-

priate behavior in their homes, schools 

and community settings. The goal: to 

help them progress so much that they 

no longer need our services. 

If they can be treated early enough, 

more severe problems can be avoided 

as they grow older, such as involvement 

with the juvenile justice system.

“Intervening early is the key,” said 

Stacey Cornett, senior director of our 

campus-based services. “That trans-

lates into better outcomes for these 

kids.”


The effectiveness of the half-day 

program – for children 3 to 8 years old 

– has been rising. Three years ago, 71 

percent of the students could return to 

their regular environment. In the last 

year, 90 percent have returned. “That 

means we’ve been able to help a great-

er percentage of children meet their full 

potential,” Cornett said. 

A key to the program’s success is 

that the staff has been increasingly 

reaching out to the children’s families 

and schools, helping the families and 

schools to provide consistency in the 

way the children are taught to manage 

their emotions and behavior.

To meet the demand for the program, 

two more classrooms have been built 

for the program – the fifth and sixth 

classrooms – allowing us to serve up 

to 32 more children. The program now 

has space for 96 kids.

The program has been so successful 

that we’ve created a related full-day 

program at the request of the Cincinna-

ti Public Schools. The Integrated Ther-

apeutic Classroom program provides 

therapy as well as the added compo-

nent of education in group settings for 

children 5 to 8 years old.

WITH STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT

OUR AUTISM SCHOOL GROWS

T

he story of The Children’s Home 



High School for Students with 

Autism and Related Disorders is 

simple: Our students have made great 

progress, causing our enrollment to 

soar. 

To handle the demand, The Chil-



dren’s Home is planning to acquire a 

location near our Madisonville campus, 

allowing us to consolidate into one 

location the three campus spaces we 

now use for the autism school.

“The transformation we’re seeing 

in our students with autism is remark-

able,” said John Banchy, president and 

CEO of The Children’s Home. “With 

our expansion, more teens will be able 

to receive our services, reaching goals 

they never thought attainable.”

When they arrived at The Children’s 

Home, many of our students with 

autism had modest goals of living with 

their parents after graduation.  But 

here, they learn social skills, life skills 

and more in an academic setting, giving 

them the confidence to live on their 

own.


“They can actually see a future that 

isn’t dependent on other people,” said 

Amanda Tipkemper, autism services 

manager for The Children’s Home.  

“Even their parents can imagine that 

same future.  That’s huge.”

Our newest programs for autism 

include:


•  Transitional services — helping 

young adults to bridge the years 

from high school to adulthood with 

classroom instruction, hands-on 

learning and community outings. 

No one else in Greater Cincinnati 

is providing such a service now.

•  Ready 2 Work! — A 10-week paid 

summer internship program, pro-

viding hands-on job experience. 

Interns are trained and supervised 

by one-on-one job coaches.

After being launched in 2011, the 

school is now serving more than 50 

students.  It’s growing because families 

are hearing about the transformation 

our students are making. Initially, some 

students don’t want to be involved in 

their Individualized Education Program 

meetings, designed to customize their 

educations. By the time they leave, 

many are leading the sessions. 

Our students also are making 

friends — some for the first time. In a 

typical high school, many of them feel 

isolated. “For the families,” Tipkemper 

said, “the most powerful thing is seeing 

their kids being part of a community.’’

services, celebrating with 2016 gradu-

ates of our Autism High School, William, 

Grayson, Laura and Micah.

“For the families, 

the most powerful 

thing is seeing 

their kids 

being part of a 

community.’’

— Amanda Tipkemper, autism services 

manager, The Children’s Home

Grayson Has Made Great Strides

B

efore he came to The Children’s 



Home, autism had made it diffi-

cult for Grayson to succeed in a 

typical high school.

“I struggled a lot with making friends. 

I’d be sitting alone at lunch. . .No one 

would want to sit next to me on the 

bus. Everyone would pretty much 

avoid me at all costs. The most difficult 

part was the bullying. I was frequently 

teased, pushed around a lot, made fun 

of. . .I didn’t fit in much so I came to 

The Children’s Home.

The first day I came, it was really 

nice. People were generous, kind and 

accepting. I liked how people would 

just come up to me and say hi and 

introduce themselves. I felt like I really 

fit in. It’s very enjoyable to have people 

that know how you feel and then they 

can adjust you to your surroundings.

Throughout my experience here, 

I’ve gotten to learn how to 

maintain a job, how to go 

through interviews, how to 

manage a budget, work with 

money. . . I love that I have these 

new skills. 

I got to meet a young 

man named Antonio. 

He became one of my 

best friends here. 

And over time, I’ve gotten to meet his 

friends and they were really accepting 

as well. . . I would say this has been 

a life-changing experience. I feel like 

The Children’s Home High School has 

helped me a lot in many ways.”

In May 2016, Grayson, now 18, 

graduated from The Chil-

dren’s Home High School for 

Students with Autism and 

Related Disorders. Since then, 

he’s moved back to Loveland 

High School to take courses to 

prepare him for college. He 

attributes his success to 

The Children’s Home.

to integrate behavioral and physical 

health care.

Now, partnerships have been formed 

between programs of The Children’s 

Home and Nutrition Council, including: 

•  Ready Set Work!: Students at the 

High School for Students with 

Autism and Related Disorders 

have raised vegetables and fruit in 

the campus garden, selling it at a 

farm stand, all under the Council’s 

guidance. The program has given 

students exposure to the work 

world as well as the opportunity to 

assess their skills and get special-

ized training. 

•  Wellness Wednesday: Students 

at the Lower School have tasted 

a different fresh fruit or vegetable 

every week. Some had never tast-

ed fresh produce before.

•  Nutrition counseling: In a program 

that will be tested at the new 

Levine Family Health Center on the 

Madisonville campus, the Council 

plans to provide nutrition coun-

seling to children who are over-

weight, obese or suffering from 

nutrition-related health conditions. 

Then, if it’s successful, the plan is 

to expand it to other school-based 

health centers across Cincinnati.

Said Lancaster, “We’re planting the 

seeds for good nutrition.”



A RECIPE FOR GROWTH:

 

COMBINE TWO NONPROFITS, MIX AND SAVOR THE OUTCOME

Nutrition Council 

Becomes Part of 

The Children’s Home

 

W

hat happens when you take 



a 152-year-old children’s 

organization, add a small 

nonprofit and stir thoroughly? You get 

a program to promote healthy eating 

that’s able to serve more children in 

even more ways.

That’s what happened when The 

Children’s Home acquired the Nutrition 

Council. Until this year, the 42-year-old 

Council had been independent. But 

both nonprofits recognized that the 

Council would be stronger as part of 

The Children’s Home.

A year later, the Council has achieved 

more than what Lauren Lancaster, its 

director, believed it could accomplish 

by now, thanks to the backing of The 

Children’s Home. “Combining our 

efforts has substantially expanded our 

capacity to provide nutritional educa-

tion and advocacy to the community.”

For the first time, the Council has a 

teaching kitchen, created by renovating 

space in the Emery Building on The 

Children’s Home Madisonville campus. 

It has a stove, oven, sink, refrigerator, 

tables, chairs and more. Campers from 

Camp-I-Can, the summer day camp of 

The Children’s Home, have been in-

troduced to nutrition education there. 

And new mothers have been able to 

improve their cooking skills there in a 

series called “Lunch and Learn,” offered 

through Every Child Succeeds.

Overall, the Council educates chil-

dren and their families about healthy 

eating, providing the knowledge, skills 

and motivation that people need to 

make healthy food choices. Among its 

outside partners are early childhood 

programs, schools, businesses, church-

es and other community organizations, 

helping it reach some of the region’s 

most vulnerable children.  

The acquisition of the Council was 

natural for The Children’s Home, a con-

tinuation of an effort started in 2011 

Therapy Has Made a Difference 

For Mother and Daughter

The Children’s Home is treating parents now too.

L

ife is better for Kayla and her 



mother, Ashley, since they started 

getting counseling at The Chil-

dren’s Home.

Previously, Kayla had been crying 

every day after school. Bullying and 

worrying about tests had taken a toll 

on her. 

Her mother had emotional ups and 

downs, including angry outbursts. She 

also had problems with self-confidence. 

Their symptoms were affecting each 

other and affecting their relationship. 

In a program launched in 2014 called 

Counseling for Caregivers, The Chil-

dren’s Home has provided care to both, 

extending our counseling services to 

some of the parents of the children we 

treat. It makes sense to treat caregivers 

because a parent’s well-being can have 

such a big effect on a child.

With her therapist’s help, Kayla 

learned coping skills for anxiety and 

dealing with bullies. She now knows 

how to express herself without being 

mean back to them.  “My grades have 

been going up a lot because I have not 

been getting as anxious and as worried 

on tests and on little quizzes,” she said. 

“My friends have even said they’ve 

noticed a difference in me, a good 

difference.”

After receiving counseling from a 

therapist for adults, her mother now 

has more control of her emotions and 

greater self-confidence too.

And our Counseling for Caregivers 

program – aimed at promoting family 

healing — is growing. More than 90 

parents and other caregivers are receiv-

ing counseling.

“Amazing stories are abounding,” said 

Debbie Gingrich, director of behav-

ioral health for The Children’s Home. 

“Reports of increased child success — 

coupled with caregiver success — let 

us know we are on the right track to 

addressing a gap in our services.”

FINANCIALLY STRONGER

FISCAL YEAR 2016 CONSOLIDATED

Statement of Financial Position ($000)

Statement of Activities ($000)

Revenue of The Children’s Home increased in fiscal 2016 by nearly 9 percent as we served more children in more ways than 

ever before. Leading the way were our behavioral health and education programs, which grew by a combined $1.3 million.

We also initiated an effort to reduce employee turnover while enhancing employee recruitment.  After an extensive compensa-

tion market analysis, we increased the salary range and retirement benefits for key positions, increasing our expenses by more 

than $1.3 million. It worked: Turnover decreased by more than 25 percent.

We also continued to invest in our facilities and equipment, spending $1.6 million, which included more space for our Early 

Childhood Day Treatment program and Autism High School, creation of the Levine Family Health Center and more.



Our success depends upon our ability to 

retain talented employees. Our strategy in 

fiscal 2016 succeeded. We substantially 

reduced employee turnover by enhancing 

benefits, increasing compensation and 

continuing to maintain a supportive work 

environment.

HEALTHIER CHILDREN

New Levine Family 

Health Center Makes It 

Easier for Children to 

Receive Care

T

he Children’s Home has taken 



another major step in caring for 

children: We’ve opened a health 

care center on our Madisonville Cam-

pus, combining behavioral and physical 

health care in one location. 

For years, we’ve been known for our 

behavioral health care. But with re-

search showing the strong relationship 

between mental and physical health 

problems, The Children’s Home decided 

in 2011 to take steps to integrate our 

care. The Levine Family Health Center 

is a continuation of that effort.

“Families are excited about the 

convenience of the Health Center,” said 

Barbara Terry, The Children’s Home 

chief operating officer. “And we’re 

excited too because we’ve been able 

to remove logistical barriers to medical 

care.  The net result – the health of our 

children is improving.”   

Busy lives, transportation problems 

and the challenges in navigating com-

plex health-care systems have prevent-

ed many families from obtaining ade-

quate medical care for their children. 

But now, they’re receiving medical care 

when they’re at The Children’s Home 

for other services. 

Neighborhood children and students 

at several nearby schools also are using 

the Health Center. No one is being 

turned away.

The Health Center, which has four 

full exam rooms and a lab, is located in 

our 5051 Building on the Duck Creek 

Road side of our campus. The Cincinna-

ti Health Department is staffing it with 

a nurse practitioner, registered nurse 

and medical assistant. A physician is 

making regular visits. 

We’re projecting that the Health 

Center will have more than 1,000 visits 

in its first year.



The major donors who helped to pay for the Levine Family Health Center’s renovations 

and medical equipment include the Edward L. Levine Family Foundation, Interact for 

Health and the Heidt Family Foundation.

The Levine Family Health Center became a reality thanks to the efforts of various partners. From left are Superintendent Mary Ronan, Cincinnati Public Schools; 

James Schwab, CEO and president, Interact for Health; John Banchy, CEO and president, The Children’s Home; Dr. Robert Heidt Jr., Heidt Family Foundation

Family Foundation; Lawrence Glassmann, Joe Dominiak, Victoria Parlin and Dr. Velissarios Karacostas, The Children’s Home trustees.

We Honored Stellar 

Employees For Their 

Dedication to Children

The Children’s Home presented its annual 

Presidential Awards to three employees 

who provided exemplary service. Here are 

excerpts from the nominations, written by 

fellow employees:



Melanie Murphy

, a partial 

hospitalization therapist, has “excellent 

clinical skills and a natural ability to 

connect with children. Her 

level of commitment and 

unwavering passion for 

enhancing children’s lives 

is evident.  She often is 

the first person at work 

each day and the last per-

son to leave. She has provided support to 

children outside of work hours, including 

weekends.  Again and again, she has made 

accurate clinical decisions during crises, 

resulting in a child avoiding serious injury 

to himself or others.”

Ronda Gadd

, an autism behavior 

support specialist, is “a jack of all trades, 

especially when it comes 

to her tremendous skill 

in the application of the 

Teaching-Family Model 

(the approach used by 

The Children’s Home to 

care for children). She is 

relied on for her expertise, and is focused 

on implementing individualized, effective 

interventions. She is constantly challeng-

ing our team to be proactive, rather than 

reactive, and to consider all of the vari-

ables that impact the performance of our 

students.  She demonstrates flexibility, 

creativity, resourcefulness, energy, adapt-

ability, the ability to think on her feet and, 

the most important quality, a commitment 

to teamwork.”

Rick Reinhart

, a maintenance 

supervisor, “is one of the nicest and most 

helpful people I have met 

at The Children's Home.  

He is always happy to 

help out with anything 

that comes up, whether 

it's a simple maintenance 

issue, much appreciated 

ride across campus in a golf cart or any-

thing that we need to carry out our work 

for our clients. He makes me smile when 

I see him, even if it’s just a wave across 

campus or when he’s chasing us out of the 

building during a fire drill. His compassion 

and commitment to excellence ensures 

that The Children's Home is a safe and 

welcoming environment for clients, fami-

lies, visitors and staff.”



A LEGACY OF STRONG 

LEADERSHIP CONTINUES

For 152 years, The Children’s Home has been known for its leadership. 

Now, that strong leadership is continuing but with some new faces.

Lawrence A. Glassmann

, who has served on the 

board of trustees for five years, is the new board chair. 

Glassmann, of Indian Hill, owns The Glassmann Law Firm, 

devoted solely to resolving legal disputes. Previously, he 

pursued a varied legal career as in-house and outside coun-

sel, including serving as vice president of Aventis Pharma-

ceuticals and the senior vice president and general counsel 

of Duramed Pharmaceuticals.

John Banchy

 became president and chief executive of-

ficer of The Children’s Home after serving as chief operating 

officer. Before joining The Children’s Home, Banchy had 

been area director of an eight-state region for a national 

nonprofit and served in leadership roles for a Fortune 100 

company.

Banchy has restructured the leadership team with the goal 

of efficiently managing growth and providing strong support 

for employees:



Barbara Terry

 became chief operating officer. She joined The 

Children’s Home in 2013 as vice president of health care integra-

tion.


Joe Carolin

 became chief financial officer. He previously served 

as finance director for The Children’s Home, joining the staff in 

2012.


Roderick Hinton

 became vice president of advancement and 

community engagement.  He spent 20 years on the staff of St. 

Xavier High School, most recently as assistant vice president for 

enrollment management and strategic initiatives. 

Amy Avera

 became vice president of human services. She has 

more than 25 years of experience in human resources, including 

with The Business Backer, a financial services company in Blue Ash, 

and MedPlus, Inc., a software development company in Mason.

New leaders of The Children's Home are John Banchy (center), president and CEO, and Lawrence A. Glassman (right), board chair. Michael Coombe became past chair.

Soroya Achieved 

Her Dream 

As a teen-age mother in high school, Soroya 

could have been overwhelmed trying to care 

for her infant son.

But she wasn’t alone. She had a home 

visitor, Lora Kurtz, from The Children’s Home, 

who gave her tips for raising Micah and 

provided other support and encouragement. 

Every time she’d see Lora drive up, she’d get 

excited. “It would just pick me up.”

That was more 

than a decade ago. 

Soroya, now 30, has 

a master’s degree. 

She is married with 

three children. And 

Micah is an Honor 

Roll student. 

Even more 

amazing, thanks to 

Lora’s positive influence, Soroya has achieved 

her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher, 

which means Soroya is helping to provide the 

best possible start for other children too.

The Children’s Home provided Lora’s visits 

through its Every Child Succeeds program. The 

program offers home visits for first-time at-

risk mothers, helping them create a nurturing, 

healthy environment for their children.  The 

Children’s Home has the largest Every Child 

Succeeds program in Hamilton County, serving 

more than 1,800 families since becoming an 

Every Child Succeeds partner.

Soroya hasn’t forgotten the role Lora, a 

family education support specialist, and The 

Children’s Home played. “You made me a more 

confident, competent parent,” she told Lora re-

cently. “The lessons I learned with Every Child 

Succeeds, I’ve used with all my children.”

Soroya holds her son, Gabriel. They are joined by her older 

son, Micah, and Lora Kurtz, family education support spe-

cialist with Every Child Succeeds, who provided services to 

Soroya when Micah was a baby.

“You made me a 

more confident, 

competent 

parent.”
