This summer, Childhood USA is releasing three short movies about our projects in San Francisco. Starting next week, we will be highlighting Peer Health Exchange (June 7), Legal Services for Children (July 19), and the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center (August 2). Childhood is supporting these projects because each has a unique but critical strategy to helping children in their communities.
For instance, San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center is coordinating with the Justice Department, Social Services, parents, and families to ensure that the needs of a child are met and that guardians and their children receive the support they deserve. Legal Services for Children is providing youth with legal representation, helping them find stability and healing in and out of the court system. Peer Health Exchange is empowering high school freshmen with the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary to avoid risky situations involving sex, abusive relationships, drugs, and alcohol.
Three projects, three innovative approaches to help youth find safety, stability, and a bright future for their lives. Join us on June 7 to watch our new Peer Health Exchange project movie filmed by Plus M Productions and get a behind the scenes look how peer mentoring is making waves in the San Francisco Bay Area.
