My TreeHouse has been so helpful for me because I got to know other kids who were struggling with the same issues as me. It was nice to know that I am not alone and there are other kids who understand my experience.
My TreeHouse recognizes that many families face barriers that reach beyond questions of access to services. Just determining what services are needed can be overwhelming. We help determine priority needs and find the best clinical services, creating opportunities for growth, education and support.
It can be hard to understand the tremendous amount of energy that goes into adoption parenting. Parents need to be active in finding emotional support for themselves. The company of other parents can energize you to take care of yourself and find validation in the company of others who have traveled a similar path.
Often adopted children and teens feel different and are relieved to find others’ lives and experiences are very similar. In our peer support groups, kids can ask a question, share experiences and find support and friendship with others who have walked their path.
Peer Support groups will begin once we enroll 4 students. Contact us if you child is interested in participating.
Teen Focus is designed for ages 14-19. Camp encourages participants to explore their history, relationships and how experience has affected their lives. By giving them the opportunity to interact with other adoptees, promoting honest communication, and sharing experiences, campers cement enduring bonds of friendship and leave with a new, healthy set of tools for navigating life.
