Empowered children

How ?

Encouraging a child means that one or more of the following critical life messages are coming through, either by word or by action: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, You are listened to, You are cared for, You are very important to me.” ~ Barbara Coloroso


          At Nshelter, are making a difference with the elementary and middle school students across the world. Building a solid, one-on-one relationship with the child is at the heart of our work. We provide direct assistance and connect them to community resources so they can overcome barriers to success, inside and outside of the classroom. We help each child discover their own ability to succeed, whether that’s completing homework, learning new life skills, or successfully completing the school year.


          Our staff is made up of trusted advocates that work to build a valuable support system for students. We help the child to create the future they envision for themselves by wrapping them in a wide range of supports. A child with parents navigating a cancer diagnosis may struggle emotionally.   

          Behavioral issues can be a result of emotional trauma in the home, environmental events, social challenges, or an inability to cope with a variety of situations in and out of the home.


          We encourage positive behavioral responses to resolve internal or external conflicts, while helping children build new skills to self-regulate, and promote social and emotional growth. ?
