We believe there are no throw away children,
that each young girl can be saved.
When a girl is placed in our care... she is broken. She is often angry, resentful, traumatized, lacking in trust, devoid of hope. She wants to be anywhere but here, with anyone but us.
Our staff is trained to look past the trauma and see the child that is hiding deep inside. All of the fear, anger, resentment, sorrow - these are symptoms of the trauma she has endured, of the brokenness she has sustained- not reasons to give up on her. We’re here to help her work through these layers of abuse, to walk by her side as she journeys from trauma to triumph.
How do we do this?
By recognizing that each girl is unique and understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to helping each child. We provide a variety of programs and services tailored to meet her individual needs. Every girl has her own path that she is on and her own personal way that she needs to travel it - making her way from #TraumaToTriumph.
