We offer a continuum of care for adolescent males and females by providing quality programs that emphasize a strength-based, youth empowerment philosophy in a trauma informed care setting.

Youth empowerment is a powerful tool that:

  • Allows young people to become partners in healing
  • Helps young people learn new skills
  • Supports the development of inherent strengths so that young people can be successful in their lives

Our programs promote behavioral, emotional and physical health and guide youth toward breaking down barriers and building self-esteem. We encourage:

  • Focusing on young people’s assets and strengths
  • Building genuine relationships with youth and families
  • Facilitating young peoples’ service to their communities
  • Respecting children’s rights to self-determination
  • Believing that change is possible
  • Believing that all people and all communities have resources
  • Embracing empowerment as a process and goal
