Gogerty BuildingOpened in 1992 as Childhaven’s second center, the Patrick L. Gogerty Branch serves approximately 98 children in the South King County area. The building is named in honor of Childhaven’s modern-day founder and former executive director Patrick Gogerty, whose own abusive childhood inspired him to shift Seattle Day Nursery’s day care focus toward the care of the youngest victims of abuse and neglect. Some 44 full-time employees make up the branch’s staff, including 31 therapeutic childcare workers.

The branch’s construction, in a space formerly occupied by a shopping center, was supported through an extensive capital campaign and the generosity of many individual, corporate and foundation donors, including key contributions from The Boeing Company and The Glaser Foundation.
