What We Do

What We Do

Helping Families

Sometimes parents need help raising their kids. We provide a variety of counseling and mentoring services that help families remain stable and healthy.

Helping Children

Sometimes, for their own safety, children cannot live with their parents. We help children who have experienced abuse or neglect with emergency shelter and healing therapy. We find them stable families through our foster care and adoption programs.

Our Mission

To provide traditional and innovative programs that enhance the well-being of children and their families and provide opportunities for them to realize their full potential.
