Protecting children from exploitation.
WHAT WE DO
We look to strengthen and preserve the family unit wherever possible, whether that is through their biological families, adoptive families, foster families, or kinship care.
When children and youth age out of government custody most often they lose connection to all the supports they had, leaving them very vulnerable and isolated. Most do not have families or support networks they can turn to when they exit. Many are not emotionally prepared to face the adversities of independent living which increases their risk of homelessness, trafficking, exploitation, suicide, substance use, and other issues.
“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has- or ever will have- something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression."
