Our Students:
Our students may be experiencing problems at school, in the neighborhood, or even at home. Families are impacted by a variety of stressors: single parenting, substance abuse, divorce or death of a parent, and many others. 

Our students come to us with feelings of anger, lack of discipline, unworthiness, fear of abandonment, academic failures, or learning disabilities. They may be struggling in school and need extra help and tutoring. The common thread is that these young people are in situations that are unhealthy for them and they need a stable environment. We provide a place to help heal those hurts.
