achieved an usual 100% runaway prevention success rate,
and a return-to-school score of 100% in post-holiday break evaluations.
– Reported by Social Services, Foster Care Division, German Government.

This custom-designed program provide skills to develop stronger links between workers and their youth. These links often make the difference in preventing youth in foster care from falling into homelessness, drugs, and despair while reinforcing healing from trauma, social-emotional development of self-care system, academic achievement and entrepreneurial skills that help prepare for a brighter future ahead.
