Childrens House- transition between home and foster care.
Organized by: trea bartilotti
My heart breaks for children who are struggling all over the world and I typically show support to many of the available charities for them. My concern however is aimed towards the children here in this country, more specifically, here locally in NC. With substance abuse on the rise more and more children are being abused and neglected and often put into the system. While there are resources available to them, foster parents, adoption and various programs care for their individual needs is often overlooked. I want to create a place, home for teens to go that resembles supportive family life a place they can feel at home and able to continue growing up and develop mentally and emotionally despite the troubles at home. This would be a place that encourages healthy relationships with their parents regardless of reasons why they are currently separated from them. This would also extend the time between being taken from the home and placed in foster care so as to find placement that fits the unique needs of the child. Its far too often that our kids are lost and forgotten in the system.
