Foster Care

We provide critical help for foster parents & children

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) indicates that childhood trauma is related to a decrease in life expectancy. All foster children have experienced some level of trauma. As a result, they often face:

  • Grieving their loss of biological family
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Learning challenges
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Attachment disorders
  • Oppositional defiance
  • Self-harm
  • Mental health disorders

 

When these trauma-related issues are left untreated, foster children are at risk for a future that includes dropping out of school, criminal activity, teenage pregnancy, and institutionalization.

Parents of children with a history of trauma often find themselves at a loss to break these cycles. Traditional parenting techniques don’t seem to work. The training they received before the child entered the home was not enough or has been forgotten. Friends and family provide well-meaning advice that is ineffective, and caregivers are left feeling confused and overwhelmed by what their children need in the midst of everyday struggles.
