Yet, we are never satisfied with the present at Patrick Henry. There remains too many children, with far too many needs, to ever become complacent.
We are turning away too many children because we either don’t have the appropriate facilities, enough properly trained staff, or the right location to meet their challenging needs. We also need to build a stronger relationship with Social Services. We have to work with them if we want to help the thousands of children in the system. It’s also essential we do more to confront the poisonous culture that continues to put these innocent kids in harmful situations.
Take Away: We simply have to do more to meet the needs of vulnerable children.
