We do whatever it takes to restore peace in the home.
Chosen helps children heal from trauma by strengthening their families. We serve foster, kinship, adoptive and reunified families. Children who have been harmed in relationship can only heal in relationship. Our holistic approach addresses children’s mental and behavioral health needs, as well as caregiver and sibling needs. We are relentlessly committed to doing whatever it takes to set children on a path of healing.
In home or via telehealth, we accomplish this work using the best evidence-based practices and a life-on-life model. Our program staff provides parent coaching, therapeutic resources, targeted case management and peer mentors. Since launching these programs in 2016, we have had ZERO disruptions for families we’ve worked with for 6 months or more. Intervention and healing changes a child’s trajectory to prevent tragic outcomes like: dropping out of high school, substance abuse, homelessness and mental illness.
Chosen’s array of evidence–based and trauma informed assessments and intervention are raising the level of care available to help children heal from abuse and neglect while transforming the entire paradigm within foster care and adoption for our community. Their commitment to help parents disarm deep fear enhances positive early childhood experiences. Their work shows a deep commitment to strengthening families in ways that ensure our community thrives now and in future generations.
