Institutional foster care is the most broken and corrupt area of the foster care system, and without effective solutions to raise the bar, it will remain that way.
But our family simulation model is revolutionizing outcomes for children who typically experience the worst outcomes of any group in foster care.
Providence Coffee House
Each year, 23,000 children age out of foster care without their forever family. Undereducated, undersupported, and emotionally battered, only half are able to find gainful employment by 24.
Without options or support, more than half of young women turn to the sex industry to survive, 1 in 4 are incarcerated by 21, half become addicted to drugs, and half experience homelessness by 21.
Providence Coffee House is designed to give these young men and women an opportunity to begin building a life of success. Today, Providence Coffee House remains a vision, but with partners like you, we can make it a reality and begin to breathe life back into hopeless young lives!
Relational trauma can only be healed through relationship, but for many children in foster care, the walls of distrust are high and thick, and they must be torn down brick by brick.
Equine therapy is uniquely appropriate for children who have experienced relational trauma because it provides a non-threatening stepping stone for these children to begin opening up and trusting again–giving them their best chance at healing.
