Our Mission: To nurture the mind, the body, and the spirit of children who are missing out on fun, friendship, success, and achievement because of difficulty managing their emotions and behavior, as well as provide education and mental health supports to families.
“This program is a lifeline for children who struggle fitting into conventional social structures.”
“The support group is a major benefit to Attaway. It gives parents tools and perspective to deal with their child.”
“It is great. Knowing that you’re not alone. And that it’s not my fault or wrongful parenting that is causing my daughter’s behaviors.”
