According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “mental and behavioral health is the largest unmet health need for children and teens in foster care.” Our wellness programs aim to support the mental health needs of children in foster care and their caregivers.
Our Wellness Programs Support Foster Families
Our age-appropriate Wellness Kits include yoga mats, meditation timers, weighted blankets, books, journals, coloring books and more. They are currently available for attenders of our yoga classes.
We have partnered with our sister organization, Dragonfly Yoga, to offer yoga classes for children in foster care. In these classes, kids participate in a therapeutic-oriented program designed to help with mental and physical health.
Coming Soon! Fiaria Project is working on initiatives to connect children in foster care and their caregivers with mental health professionals. Lack of access to care often prevents children from getting the care they need!
