We believe safe children and healthy families create strong communities.

Individuals in our care have typically experienced significant trauma that can affect their mental, physical and behavioral health with long-term and life-altering consequences. If children and families do not receive the help and support they need, they are more at risk of dropping out of school, developing health conditions and repeating cycles of abuse or neglect. But we know brighter futures are possible.
