Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adoption, Children & Youth

Mission: The 'r kids Family Center mission is permanency, safety and stability for vulnerable children and their families.

Programs: Working with Department of Children and Families referred clients, 'r kids works with families who have been separated from their children. The goal is to provide intensive support services to allow for permanency either within the birth home, the relative care or adoptive home. Staff provide initially center based supervised visitation and individualized parenting support .Additionally assessment and treatment planning services are provided. The provision of unsupervised and in-home visits occurs for those families who have a plan of reunification. If reunification is not the goal, staff prepairs the families and children for a permanent out-of - home placement. Staff provide children with programming to meet specific individual needs, including referrals and transitional planning and support. Our services are on-going and multi-faceted, singularly geared toward the timely implementation and support of effective permanency plans.

I was introduced to RKids in a time of need and my worker went out of her way to make my family and I feel comfortable and to not to be afraid. We enjoyed the services that were given to us as it helped us grow as individuals and as a family. I got complete support and I recommend anyone else that might need help or services from RKids to definitely use them.

My experience here with R Kids was truly amazing, Courtney Robinson made being a student enjoyable. She brought a lot of knowledge and excitement to the class. I was able to learn and apply skills to my children ages 3 and 2. This class has shed how important it is to ensure I pay attention to learning and my children's abilities to communicate as well as proper ways to offer positive reinforcement. I would recommend this program to all women who have children at all ages

I am a social worker and a therapeutic level foster parent who had the opportunity to work RKids for my 15 y/o foster child. They provided excellent support and after school services that was effective in meeting my child's specialized needs. The girls group was successful in teaching my youth how to socialize with peers and share her trauma story in a safe environment through creative activities. This became a nice spring board for her as she journeyed to her level of treatment!

'r kids has vast knowledge and appreciation of diverse cultures. This is very important in dealing with people from various cultures and races. It feels good to be understood and your belief system appreciated and respected. My family was treated with courtesy and professionalism.
