A.N.C.H.O.R. (Addressing Needs, Creating Hope, Optimizing Relationshipsis a 10-week program serving school-aged children who have experienced trauma or negative life events. Participants meet during the school day among peers to develop coping skills, identify and understand feelings, determine effective ways to plan for safe and healthy futures, and increase self-esteem.

S.P.A.R.K. (Sparking Power And Resiliency in Kids) is a 12-week program serving children ages 4-18 who have experienced trauma, their siblings, and parents/caregivers. Participants meet in a group setting among peers to understand how trauma has impacted them, to develop coping strategies to build resiliency, and empower one another to have healthy and safe futures. The sibling and parent/caregiver groups work simultaneously using a trauma-focused model to process the traumatic experience, learn effective family communication skills, and better understand the disruption that traumatic experiences can have on daily life.

Individual and Family Counseling is also available to help children with a history of abuse/trauma (including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse/neglect and witness to domestic violence).  Our staff is trained in evidence-based therapies to address trauma, grief, and interactions between parent and child, including Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).

Case Management Services are available for children and families on an as needed basis to help connect families with resources.

We also offer services for adults who experienced childhood sexual abuse.  Please visit S.O.A.R. (Survivors of Abuse Recovery) to learn more about this adult only program.

Registration  Services are open to residents of any county. Participants are approved via a face to face clinical assessment to determine the appropriateness of services. Snacks are routinely provided in all group services.
