About CHRIS Kids, Inc.
CHRIS Kids, Inc. is a non-profit organization, offering a wide range of programs and activities designed to foster team building, self-esteem and development among abused and neglected youth. CHRIS Kids, Inc. heals victimized children and strengthens families so that they can reach their potential and be contributing citizens. Their mission is to break the cycle of abuse by healing children, strengthening families and building community.
Creativity, Honor, Respect, Integrity, Safety – The values that make CHRIS Kids.
To achieve their mission, CHRIS Kids developed a range of prevention and intervention services and a reunification program that assists children in returning to live with their families. Services include Keeping Families Together with prevention, reunification and a nine week summer day camp for children who cannot attend regular summer camps; neighborhood based residential treatment for children in the foster care system; safe shelter and independent living for older youth.
They also offer a community based treatment alternative – a CHRIS Kids family. Over half the children who come in to the therapeutic group homes have no identified family member involved in their lives, so they try to locate relatives and provide mentors to ensure lasting relationships. While living in a CHRIS Kids family, children receive mental health treatment designed to help them learn how to behave responsibility at home, at school, and in the community. CHRIS Kids strengthens families and offers opportunity, hope and healing to victimized children. For more information about CHRIS Kids, please visit their website: www.chriskids.org
