To provide affordable case-management, legal and family services to at-risk families. We also bridge the gap between family-continuity and health when families engage with Family Court and the wider legal system. Through education, support and compassionate oversight, we assist parents in focusing on outcome-based, decision-making done in the best interest of their children in order to minimize child and family trauma.

“Toxic stress response can occur when a child experiences strong, frequent, and/or prolonged adversity—such as physical or emotional abuse, neglect, caregiver substance abuse or mental illness, exposure to violence, and/or the accumulated burdens of family economic hardship—without adequate adult support. This kind of prolonged activation of the stress-response systems can disrupt the development of brain architecture and other organ systems, and increase the risk for stress-related disease and cognitive impairment, well into the adult years.”
― Nadine Burke Harris, The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity
