HELP You DEVELOP A HEALTHY relationship WITH YOUR CHILD

When children experience trauma in the child welfare system, meeting their needs can be difficult. Histories of abuse and neglect leave them hurt, lonely, and vulnerable. But there is hope. Chosen helps caregivers understand the trauma and gives access to trauma-responsive tools so healthy familial attachment can take place.

Who Do We Serve?

Birth Parents

Birth parents who are reunified with their children are trying their best to reconnect with their child and stabilize their home. Chosen gives reunified families the tools they need to heal together.

Why Do Birth Families Turn to Us?

Kinship CAREGIVERS

Often, kinship caregivers do not expect to be in this position. When a grandparent or extended family member welcomes a child into their home, Chosen provides resources to help navigate the situation.

Why Do Kinship Caregivers Turn to Us? ​

Foster Families

Fostering begins with a big heart, but it can be overwhelming. When stressful behaviors emerge in children, foster parents may find themselves wanting to give up. Chosen is here to help you persevere.

Why Do Foster Families Turn to Us?

Adoptive FamilieS

Trauma occurs when a child is separated from their birth parents. Adoptive parents may struggle with addressing trauma and attaching to the child. Chosen can help you find connection and healing.

Our History

Chosen was founded in 2009 and restructured in 2016 as an independent 501(c)(3). Since inception, Chosen has evolved to meet the emotional and mental health needs of vulnerable children and their families. 

Chosen has worked with this population since 2009, originally under a national nonprofit. Chosen was restructured as an independent nonprofit in 2016 and has existing licensed social work staff and educators who provide personalized case management and counseling.

Throughout our history, Chosen has seen zero dissolutions/disruptions. This means that since 2016, no child has been returned to the child welfare system after working with Chosen for 6+ months. This is in stark contrast to the general population, in which an estimated 32% of children are returned to the system.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
