In September, the House of Hope had the pleasure of participating in the second annual Worth It Conference hosted by Community Renewal of Pottawatomie County. The idea behind Worth It is to empower young women to find identity and worth while supporting fellow female counterparts.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., per the CDC, and over 1.4 million Americans attempt each year. It is important to be able to notice the signs and provide help immediately because everyone is affected by suicide, not just the victim.
FireLodge Children & Family Services works diligently to ensure Potawatomi families stay connected. Our work includes encouraging and supporting relationships between foster parents and birth families.
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.
