We seek to heal the traumatic wounds suffered by girls and teens ages 6 to 17 victims of abuse neglect and/or abandonment. Our multi-disciplinary team in this project works together in a coordinated approach to assure that each one of our clients receives personalized attention to their particular needs and conditions. The team is composed of experts in human conduct and medical care exclusively recruited for having a profound understanding of the reciprocal effects of giving.
Abused children cannot express emotions safely. Thus, the emotions get stuffed down, coming out in unexpected ways. All types of child abuse and neglect leave lasting scars. Some of these scars might be physical, but emotional scarring has long lasting effects throughout life, damaging a child's sense of self, ability to have healthy relationships, and ability to function at home, at work and at school.
