About Hecht & Hecht Insurance Agency // home

Just as you have transformed the lives of children over the years, Hecht & Hecht Child Welfare Insurance Services strives to transform insurance and risk management programs for child welfare providers. We do so by serving as the voice of children in your care – by helping insurance companies understand what you really do and how to best protect and defend you, particularly when an allegation is made or a tragedy occurs. What's more, with Hecht & Hecht Child Welfare Insurance Services, our emphasis is on helping your organization prevent injuries and on keeping your doors open for years to come for the children who need you.

Founded by Evelyn Hecht, a child advocate for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and a Juris Doctor, Hecht & Hecht Child Welfare Insurance Services is the insurance and risk management ally for agencies and organizations whose principal goal is to protect children. Our relationship with insurance companies and child welfare organizations are personal, based on open interactive communication, trust and integrity, and the highest level of service. Specific child welfare insurance coverages include protection for allegations of injury concerning:

  • Abuse
  • Sexual Involvement Between Youth
  • Alienation of Affection
  • Social Work
  • Negligent Supervision and Hiring
  • Sexual Misconduct by Staff or Volunteers with Youth
  • Adoption Services
  • Sports Activities

…and many more risks your organization may be inadvertently self-insuring.

We're not afraid of the risks inherent in caring for abused kids. Acceptable operations can include:

  • Residential Care Facilities
  • Foster Family Agencies
  • Adoption Services
  • Psychiatric Services
  • Day Treatment Counseling Centers
  • Group Homes
  • Non-Public Schools
  • Ropes and Wilderness Courses
  • Wrap-Around Services

…and many more risk typically frowned upon by the insurance industry.
