McGruff House Project

Return to Services

A McGruff House is a temporary haven for children who find themselves in frightening or dangerous situations. Children are told that they can go to specially marked McGruff Houses, which might be houses, townhouses, apartments, or mobile homes, any time they sense danger as they go to and from school or are playing in the neighborhood.

McGruff Houses provide a safety network for children and reduce the risk that children will be victimized.
