Community As Family

PEACE4KIDS IS DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING FOSTER YOUTH BY PROVIDING COMMUNITY AS FAMILY

Kids in foster care may move homes several times in one year, and this lack of permanency contributes to an inability to form strong, positive relationships, especially with adults. Trained staff and volunteers interface with youth on a consistent basis to model healthy relationship building and effective communication. The Peace4Kids community becomes a family for youth in foster care.   

 

To meet the call to action for a population of youth in crisis, we deliver services that instill in our youth the skills and knowledge to become self-sufficient adults:

  • Weekly training, workshops, and activities that focus on independent living skills, emotional and behavioral intelligence, economic literacy, dream discovery and goal setting.

 

  • Quarterly staff and volunteer trainings to ensure continued delivery of a consistent, safe and nurturing environment where youth are given guidance to learn cooperation, conflict resolution, and build self-esteem.

 

  • Intensive, one-to-one services to transitioning youth ages 16-24 so that they achieve positive outcomes relating to housing, employment, education and health.

 

  • 24-hour availability to help transitioning youth better access the physical and mental health services available to them, as well as provide them with vocational counseling, transitional housing consultation, and general guidance regarding self-sufficiency.
