our Mission

...breaking multigenerational cycles of childhood trauma

we're changing families

We empower families by helping build their resilience and working with the systems around them, so trauma cycles are interrupted and children can look forward to brighter futures. Our multigenerational approach comes without judgment to help families grow stronger together... because we know strong communities begin with strong families.

But don't take our word for it! Check out Lala's story here.

holiday party

For 2020 we changed our Client Holiday Party into a drive thru experience.  Our holiday helpers (volunteers, donors,  & staff) allowed us to safely give 211 children of the families we serve a brighter holiday season.

resilience kits

Building resilience is a core part of our mission to break generational trauma. To help with that, we created over 300 resilience kits and delivered them to families across Davidson & Rutherford counties.

COVID resources

It's been a challenging year for most of us, and our clients are no exception. To make sure we're still supporting families & our community, we pulled together a collection of resources to help cope with the pandemic.

Our supporters rock!

This year, we asked some of our volunteers and board members to help us craft a video for the Big Payback (a 24-hour period where donors help us raise as much money as possible) about what it means to be a Change Agent. Because of their help, not only were we able to raise more money than we ever have before, but we also got some great footage out of it!

Check out our video to find out what it means to become a Change Agent for Children!

we stand for equity

Our country stands on principles of embracing diversity of thought, race, religion, ethnic background, etc. With greater equity we all rise. With this in mind, there is no room for racism. Together we have the power to claim victory over division and hatred by having difficult conversations and making genuine human connections. Our stance against racism and our committment to equity are absolute.
