what we’ve been up to


Sensory Integration Therapy

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Sensory integration therapy plays a significant role in the work we do with children in our emergency shelters. When a child comes to the shelter, either through the Department of Child Safety or a Community Placement, specially trained staff and volunteers assess each child’s situation and develop a plan to address any development deficits.


Father Focused Offerings

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Mothers and fathers play different roles in the development of their children. Mothers commonly play the nurturing role and protect their children from the “outside world.” Fathers, on the other hand, are critical in assisting with the separation experience by helping the child safely and securely separate from the intense maternal dependency of infancy.



Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Co-Parenting occurs when a couple shares equally in the custody and care of their child after separation or divorce. The key piece to the co-parenting puzzle is sharing equally the parenting responsibilities, regardless of custody arrangements.


What is a Disruption in Foster Care?

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

A disruption occurs when a child is moved unexpectedly from a foster home. A foster family contacts their licensing agency to request the child be removed from their home. When this happens, a child is moved immediately to another foster home, group home or shelter.
