Our mission: To prevent injuries to children in and around the home.

While it sounds simple enough, sometimes keeping your children safe is easier said than done. Kids play. Kids climb. Kids run. And occasionally? Kids get hurt. Our goal is to help you - parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone else - make your home as safe and injury-free as possible.

Charlie’s House offers a number of resources for making your home safer:

Charlie's Checklist
This is where it all started - a simple, no-frills list highlighting home-safety improvements you can make yourself.
