Positive emotions humans experience actually broaden our sense of possibilities and allow us to then build new skills or resources that can positively impact our future.
Despite these recent events, FireLodge Children & Family Services continues our work in protecting and preserving Native American families. Child welfare programs do not discontinue services, even during a crisis.
In a time of social distancing, a result of the global pandemic that is COVID-19, the possibility of children being abused and neglected might be rising.
FireLodge desires to inform Potawatomi families and friends about protective factors. When present, protective factors in a child’s life may lessen the probability of abuse or neglect and can also allow families to thrive on their own.
