FAMILY MODEL

Children come to us with a range of problems that may have come about for many reasons, including poor personal decisions and traumatic situations of abuse. Each child addresses his/her issues with guidance counselors and house parent staff by establishing individual goals. These goals speak of the methods to deal with anger, relief of bitterness, overcoming potential addiction, understanding love, moving from the past- to the present-for the future and finding areas of potential for further growth.

Building self-esteem is a primary goal to overcoming peer pressure and other past behaviors that lead to poor decisions. Counselors conduct group sessions to discuss the importance of working together and for each other with house parents and children.
