To accomplish our mission, we grant wishes to these children. Abused children usually only wish for the simplest gifts, such as a new pair of shoes, musical instruments, lessons, or a birthday party. The simple things we take for granted can be the very thing they never have had the opportunity to experience.
To encourage continued healing and success, we offer mentoring and healing camps to teach them to move in their healing journey from victim to survivor, survivor to thriver, and from thriver to mentor. These life skills will allow them to one day be mentors themselves.
Our Mission is to empower children who are survivors of abuse to thrive by providing special services to encourage hope, and by creating opportunities that will develop trust and healing so they can achieve lifelong success.
We assist children and teens to overcome the barriers they face as survivors of abuse to become successful young adults. Without early intervention, child survivors have a high probability to tank their life because they feel broken, worthless, and unlovable. By doing what we can do to intervene, we can make a huge difference in a child’s life. The earlier abused children get help, the greater chance they have to heal and break the cycle—rather than perpetuate it.
It is through Sparks of Hope’s Healing Youth Camps® that these children can move from brokenness into wholeness, which encourages healing. It is a lifetime journey of healing for many abuse survivors. Sparks of Hope Healing Youth Camps® are centered on assisting the child/teen survivor to heal and reclaim their childhood, their power, and their voice.
Our unique mentoring program matches our young person with two adults of the same gender. Our program encourages hope, healing, and trust in a safe and supportive environment. Having a relationship with caring adult role models helps empower the hurting young person to develop their true potential to discover their self-worth. By providing kids with positive adult role models, it inspires hope to help them navigate through life’s challenges growing up as an abuse survivor. It brings hope for a better future.
