Philosophy of Service

  • We believe that all children and youth deserve a safe, nurturing environment.

  • We believe that adolescence is an important time of transition, and that youth need and deserve compassion, encouragement, and support.

  • We believe that children and youth should be recognized and valued as a vital part of our community.

  • We believe change is needed within society to create a safe and healthy environment for children and youth.
