The Haukkala Foundation was established in Jyväskylä, Finland, in 2013 by the Association for the Haukkala Child Psychiatric Hospital. For more than 50 years, the Association had as its mission to support the essential and pioneering work of the Haukkala hospital in supporting and addressing the mental health and emotional and social needs of children. When the hospital was municipalized by the city of Jyväskylä and no longer needed the support of the Association, the Foundation was created to continue and broaden this mission for children’s welfare.
