kids count!

The Kids Count! program was developed to provide children, ages 5 - 11. Developed to provide children exposed to family violence (whether verbal, physical or emotional) an opportunity for healing and growth in their lives.

The coordinators of this program believe that kids deserve validation and a listening ear, opportunities to express themselves authentically, access to creative outlets like art and movement, and guidance learning appropriate ways to express their sometimes complicated feelings.

Kids Count! meets weekly for one hour and focuses on a different theme each week.

Topics by week include:

1. Safety Plan 

2. Family Stories 

3. Anger 

4. Bullying 

5. Boundaries 

6. Feelings& Self- Esteem 

7. Graduation
