How do we do it? Here are a few examples:

Finally, a family

By the time he was 8, Jay had lived in 6 different homes. No one in his life could provide a safe, stable environment. He fell behind in school and his behavior issues challenged everyone who tried to help. Northern Rivers gave him care he could count on, placing him in a supportive foster home with the therapy he needed, and now Jay is part of a family.

School success

Every week it seemed like Selena had another issue at school. Cutting classes, disobeying teachers, fighting with classmates. Her family needed help. Northern Rivers gave them care they could count on. Through individual and family therapy and ongoing support right in their home, Selena and her family built strength. And her last report card? The best one yet!

On her way

Cat is 17, a freshman in college, getting good grades and maintaining her first apartment. She came to Northern Rivers at 11, having experienced abuse and trauma. She didn’t have anyone she could count on, and she was angry at the whole world. Cat found care she could count on at Northern Rivers, and with care, counseling, and support, she’s ready to chase her dreams.

The next chapter
