We provide the following outcomes and benefits to children through our services:
Health screenings and developmental assessments allow Center staff to plan specialized activities tailored to promote each child’s optimal growth and progress. Parents receive instruction and valuable insight into the health and development needs of their children and are assisted in locating other services specific to their child’s needs.
Abusive parents are able to remove themselves from unhealthy situations and are offered supportive services that educate them on reasonable alternatives to conflict resolution and crisis management. Case Managers assist families in seeking other valuable community programs to repair family dynamics, improve parenting practices, and achieve family stability.
The nurturing, home style environment, of our shelters offer security, encouragement and growth opportunities that facilitate trust, promote higher self-esteem, and foster positive behaviors and attitudes for abused and neglected children. Therapeutic play stimulates developmental achievements, while nutritious meals fuel each child’s mind and body.
Abusive parents receive insight and information that encourages healthier family interactions. Nurturing techniques and parenting skills are modeled for parents. Staff introduce healthier perceptions of children’s behaviors. Therapeutic Teachers guide children in the development of positive social/emotional skills.
Children born into families where generational abuse has been the norm are safeguarded. Their families are able to achieve meaningful change that interrupt the cycle of low self-esteem, depression, poor self-control and diminished coping that contribute to abusive behaviors. Positive experiences reduce the odds that these children will themselves perpetuate the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
