The program we are preparing is therapeutic in nature, and will help give information through teaching, community meetings, personal therapy, activities to enhance the learning, and group therapy, It will be an opportunity from the very first day for the children to find information and support to change the behaviors that got them in a facility in the first place.
Relationships must be built in a caring, non-judgmental and supportive environment. Staff will be highly trained and practiced in the art of creating and maintaining such an environment. If you can imagine even working in such an environment then you can imagine how well the children will respond,
Even in the group homes today we have been working in such environments, and the result has been children who have graduated from our program.
The area of concern is having enough foster homes for the children to graduate to. Again, I challenge you to come find out about fostering, see how you could be the support one of the children who have worked so hard to change can count on.
