Advocates also act as liaison between the parents and various organizations such as Pasadena ISD, CPS, ECI, and others.
The Advocates provide school advocacy to all school age children within our agency. Each of the Advocates have been trained by the Texas Homeless Education Office to inform each parent of the McKinney-Vento Act, and to offer support to each school we work with. With the help of school administrators, Advocates help coordinate uniform assistance, supply assistance, transportation assistance, and educational advocacy.
The Children’s Program provides a holistic approach of trauma informed services to all families participating in our programs. These programs include: Emergency Shelter, Permanent Housing/Rapid Re-Housing and Non-Residential clients. The Children’s program creates a safe place for children to heal and grow. Our services encompass two licensed(?) NAEYC accredited childcare learning centers staffed with fourteen Child Development Associate Teachers. Working collaboratively with the teachers are four Child Advocates, a Youth Specialist, and two Parenting Educators to support all families with children ages zero through eighteen years of age.
Their children support groups use a trauma sensitive approach centered around the effects of trauma. Groups are provided weekly to all children in our programs. The groups are broken up by ages ranging from two years to eighteen years old. The group discussion topics consist of: safety, effective communication, healthy relationships, healthy boundaries, self– esteem, coping skills, identification of emotions, empathy building (caring for animals), and self-regulation techniques (expressive dance, yoga, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, boxing, art expression, and so on).
