Fred Rogers was a beloved friend to children. His groundbreaking public television series, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” delighted and educated young viewers from 1968 to 2001. On March 23, the U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp in his honor.
A Presbyterian minister, Fred Rogers developed his program in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and launched it nationally in 1968. His programs covered the experiences of growing up, from sharing and friendship to difficult subjects like anger, fear, disability and divorce.
Here at PCHAS, we remain inspired by the way Mister Rogers spoke directly to children: with respect and sensitivity. That’s the PCHAS way. We combine evidence-based interventions with Christ-like compassion that focuses on a child’s strengths.
