To prevent child abuse and neglect before it becomes a way of life.
To ensure children are safely cared for when their families are in crisis or need respite.
To assist parents in crisis, continually helping them work toward meeting their potential.
Our vision is to build strong families and ensure the safe-keeping WHAT and well-being of all children.
We all need help from time to time
To stop the threat of abuse and to minimize the stress these parents are facing, we offer to take the children for up to 72 hours. The children are kept safe at the Kottage while their parents, relieved of parenting responsibilities for a short time, identify and implement plans to solve or mitigate the issue of the crisis. Parents in crisis who bring their children to the Kottage are met with support and encouragement.
