Not SCARY After All
Stubborn, determined, driven, tech savvy, caring, and hurt are some of the qualities of our most misunderstood population who needs help: TEENS. Teenagers get such a bad rap, when in reality they, just like the younger children Kids Central cares for, have been abused, neglected or abandoned. They didn’t ask to be mistreated and most didn’t want to leave their family but for safety reason had to leave their home. If you were 15 and removed from your family because your parents couldn’t care for you and your brother due to drug abuse, wouldn’t you want a fair shake? These are the children we need your help the most with. Read more
