A lifebook is a tool to help children/youth grieve, celebrate, document attachments, and life events. It allows a child to: organize past events in chronological order, increase self-esteem, reread at their own pace, share their past with others, build trust with those who help make it, and help them accept their past.

We love how well you love you family, but sometimes you just need a night off! We know at times finding child care can be difficult (especially if you have a lot of littles!) Enjoy a DATE "NIGHT" and drop your kids off for an afternoon of FREE childcare, on us! Our plan for DATE "NIGHT" is to keep the littles (under 5ish) at the office and take any older kids to a PG movie at the dollar theater. (Please let us know if you are uncomfortable with them seeing a PG movie! There aren't currently any G movies showing). Lunch will be provided.
