If we truly want peace in the world, let us begin by loving one another in our own families.

Programs and Services

The World Children’s Center as a whole will become a community which provides for and/or promotes the development of protective factors required to enable children/youth to make progress toward escaping the negative consequences of poverty, abuse, and/or neglect; and to foster the development of resiliency to adversities.

The wrap-around service approach which will be used at the World Children’s Center has been specifically designed as a collaborative and integrated management system that provides community-based support in an effort to help children/youth attain their potential and make progress toward attaining the Center’s Desired Results.

It is the goal of the World Children’s Center that the same surrogate parents will continue to support and nurture the children/youth during their entire stay at the Center. Our hope is that the relationship between the surrogate parents and their children will be one of mutual respect and positive emotional ties that last a lifetime, providing our children with a positive family model to emulate throughout his or her life. Such ongoing support will provide our children with a sense of connectedness and continuity to others. These feelings are important for our children to grow into adults who can, in turn, establish and maintain healthy, long-term relationships.

The home itself will provide a supportive environment in which each child can learn the social and interpersonal skills necessary to develop his/her resiliency, leading to a satisfying and productive life. Safety within the home will be assured through conventional, as well as state-of-the-art safeguards, such as security systems, safety inspections, injury prevention programs and neighborhood awareness programs.

The physical environment of the neighborhoods will be warm and inviting, as well as safe and secure. The homes themselves will be located in close proximity to playground and other public areas designed to be easily monitored by caring adults. This structure allows our children to develop a sense of both freedom and responsibility within the safety of their own neighborhood.
