Our Work

24 Hours a Day, Every Day, Someone Is Here.

No one else does what we do. Not our government, not other non-profit organizations. We go wherever we’re needed, and we do whatever we can. We are here to help, we’re here to transform lives, and most of all, we’re here to ensure that our community is a safe place for at-risk children.

 

We respond immediately to our hotline crisis line, sometimes driving great distances across the 13 counties we serve, in order to provide comfort and services to someone in trouble. We provide the only homeless shelter for families in our community. We work with families to address the problems they’re facing, and help them to succeed with the tools they need, such as job training and medical treatment. Children without parents are a priority for us; we work to reunite them with extended family or place them with trustworthy, responsible foster parents who can provide loving homes, and possibly even adopt.

 

In 2016 across two regions there were:

16 children adopted
56 placed in kinship foster care and
214 place in therapeutic foster care

We fight to stop human trafficking in our community, our counties, our cities. We rescue victims of this horrifying and mostly unseen crime. We provide them the counseling, shelter, resources, and help that they need.

“Many of the services we offer are primarily centered on prevention and early intervention, emergency shelter and residential care and treatment. It’s an entirely diverse group of people that we serve, and we are pleased to be able to open our doors to anyone.”
-James Terry Keel

We provide transitional living programs to vulnerable youth who may be runaways, homeless, or at risk for exploitation. These traumatized youth are not ready to be released from “the system” and often can’t care adequately for themselves. We fill the gaps.

 

We educate children who are unable, for whatever reason, to attend public school. These children are often struggling from a violent past, many unable to speak English, and few have had adequate learning experiences. We teach them at their level using specialized curriculum and coursework. We facilitate their literacy and their English language ability.

 

Trained employees and volunteers are ready, round the clock, to help. We are there when no one else is, to improve the lives and outcomes of children at risk.
