Each day, children come to our campus for life-saving care…those suffering from trauma, abuse, neglect, and rejection. These young people have been removed from their homes because of abusive parents, drug/alcohol addictions, and domestic violence. Some are children with mental and behavioral disorders.
 
They are good kids who have had a rough start in life. They need help in dealing with their emotions so they can transition back to society. Children like…

  • Tom, who was abandoned by his father and lived with his mother who suffered from mental illness and addictions. A victim of physical and sexual abuse himself, Tom has been diagnosed with mood disorder, often displaying hostile and aggressive behavior. With specialized therapy, he is improving his academic performance, growing in self-confidence and starting to believe a better future awaits him. 

 

His world is changing because of you & that’s why we need your help!    

We are renovating an existing campus building to be used as a vocational, recreational and wellness center for our kids. Besides a gymnasium for physical exercise and socialization, the center will house space for programs focused on art, music, and dance therapies.  
 
  • Research shows that children with a history of abuse, neglect and rejection crave opportunities to express their feelings. These arts-centered therapeutic programs will help them heal as they learn to better recognize their problems, manage their feelings, and improve their self-esteem.
 
We need YOUR HELP to purchase equipment for these programs that are set to open in early 2018 and will cost $48,570.  Can you assist us with a generous gift from your heart to give these young people the tools they need to change their lives?  Please join us in making this project a wonderful reality!
