Be ours a purpose firm and sure
Be ours a manhood staunch and pure
~Reverend Charles Dickinson, Kurn Hattin’s founder, in his Harvard Class Day poem, 1876
There’s a lot to say about Kurn Hattin: About the steadfast legacy, more than a century old, of caring for children, each with his or her own story to tell. About the hundreds of passionate, dedicated staff, volunteers and donors over the decades, who have gone the extra mile to make a difference for children in need. About hope and trust recovered, families strengthened, and lives placed lovingly back on track.
