In order to help children who have been the victims of abuse and neglect, social workers and mental health professionals instill and restore hope. Children introduced to safe and secure environments thrive when adults provide security, affection, and positive attention. Hope is an important concept for all of us to understand.
Four years ago, President Obama addressed the nation and spoke about “the audacity of hope.” He described hope in slaves who dreamed about freedom and in immigrants who dreamed about new chances in a new land. He also described “hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty.”
Children in foster care and adoption need help in dealing with loss, grief, and change. As long as we teach them that things can improve, they will develop hope. When we introduce problem-solving skills, offer encouragement, and show them how to cope, we are teaching them about hope.
You can be part of our “circle of friends” by calling us at 818-988-6300. Please help us instill hope in children so they move toward happy and successful lives.
