Urban Farm Program
We are currently working on developing a unique program where at-risk children can experience life outside of a dense urban environment without having to go far from home. With the help of generous local developers and real-estate investors, we are looking to establish a reserved area of land in the heart of Greater Fort Lauderdale that will become an oasis for urban children to learn about life beyond what their limited experiences have allowed for.
Children will be able to learn about growing food, eating healthy, planting trees, and developing wholesome habits. Children often turn to destructive behaviors when they feel trapped and hopeless – our Urban Farm Program aims to change they way they view the world by showing them that there are better ways to live, and it’s all just around the corner.
Music and Art Therapy
Medical clinics and hospitals have been using art and music therapies in conjunction with traditional psychotherapies for at least 60 years. People are usually far more guarded with expressing themselves verbally but tend to be more open when communicating their message through art or music.
Art and music help children to better explore emotions that are associated with trauma and allow them to develop better methods of coping and eventually healing. Arts and music therapy will be used in conjunction with all the programs previously mentioned.
