We believe strongly that every youth is inherently resilient.
We operate our programming and tailor our interventions around this principle. We seek to empower youth and build upon their strengths and interests. Programs place an emphasis on utilizing a trauma-informed lens and building resilience by developing a strong sense of self, regulation skills, and connectedness.

Inspiring positive and lasting change
The cornerstone of our programming is building youth and family resilience. This is done through opportunities to connect, through improving youth ability to self-regulate, and through working to improve a youth’s ability to be healthy, happy, and productive member of our community.
This work requires a great amount of direct care hours with clients which may include on-call crisis response, 5-10 hours of direct client time per week, multiple extended visits per week, education, Connection Groups for caregivers and their children, resource navigation, and advocacy.
We can’t do this work alone. We invite you to partner with us to help us serve more youth and families.Get involvedPartner with us
