The Maryland Salem Children's Trust, Inc., provides a home, family, counseling and education to children who have been abused, neglected abandoned.
Set against a backdrop of old-growth cherry, maple, pine and oak trees in the Appalachians and bordered by exquisite Meadow Mountain and pristine state forest in beautiful Garrett County, Salem is a haven for children who have experienced repeated trauma at a young age.
It is a sanctuary whose mission is to glorify God and respect His creation through promoting reconciliation and peace in a world of broken promises and failed responsibilities.
From its humble beginnings in a single residence nearly three decades ago to the nine structures now in use and a complete range of therapeutic services, Salem has grown steadily through divine guidance and the help of a world-wide network of friends.
In its almost-three decades it has served 400 children between the ages of six and 18.
