The children’s group has been so helpful to my son, that if I had to, I would figure out a way to pay for it myself.

I first came to know ‘r kids Family Center after being referred for Parenting Classes after my daughter was removed from my home. I credit ‘r kids Family Center and my Social Worker, Steve, for learning new parenting skills to apply to my everyday life with my daughter Mikela. Sometimes she asks me question that are a little tough to answer I often turn to ‘r kids for advice on how to handle these types of questions. It was a long journey toward reunifying with my daughter, but the outcome has been worth it. I would like people to know that I cannot thank ‘r kids enough for their help. I have become a more nurturing and patient parent. I know Steve and the staff at ‘r kids are always there to help me over the little bumps in the road.

A father requested his worker attend court with him to provide him the support he felt he needed emotionally even though she was not requested by the court.

Almost one year into the children being away, I would never have gotten my twins back if it hadn’t been for ‘r kids teaching me how to navigate, document and advocate for myself and my family.
