Camp registration for 17-20 year olds is now open!




Camp registration for 17-20 year olds is now open!
Remember this camp will be held June 20th -22nd so please make sure your youth are OFF WORK for those couple of days if possible BEFORE
you sign them up! (We had a lot of last minute cancellations last year)  We want them to work, but if they are not going to be able to get off or don’t want to come, we would rather try to get those who are able and willing to register! 

Also NSEP is held the same time as Camp Life.
Please take time to assess what will be best for your particular young person.  If they are still needing some experience on a college campus, uncertain about college or this is really their first time interacting with other youth at this capacity, Camp Life may be for them. 

NSEP is a 6 week program and some youth are just not ready for that long period of time.  If, however, your youth has been to camp a couple of times and is really considering college, then maybe NSEP may be a better fit.

WE WILL ONLY BE TRANSPORTING AMBASSADORS from NSEP this year!
Make sure they are signed up for what is most appropriate!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

As always we WILL provide transportation, we will have bus stops in additional counties this year, so stay tuned for more information!

We have some VERY cool things in store for our youth this year, I have some youth contacting me already making sure they know when registration starts!  J

NSORO College Bound Summer Camp 2017


It’s that time of year again!  Please submit your applications for nsoro College Bound Summer Camp 2017.  There is a strict May 5th deadline and a few changes from last year’s application process.  First,  please note that the recommendation must come from the campers teacher or advisor at school.  It cannot come from the social worker, instructions for this are included in the application.  Second, the application really needs to be completed by the camper with assistance from the social worker.  Social Workers should not be completing the application without the campers input. Third, once the application has been submitted to Alabama REACH it will be reviewed and if the camper is selected the social worker will receive an additional packet of information including release of liability forms, what the camper should/should not bring, medical forms, etc. so it is important to get applications in quickly to ensure enough time to complete all forms.  Campers with incomplete packets will not be allowed to attend.

20/20 The Forever Family? Harris Family Adopts Three Abused Sisters.

New 20/20 The Forever Family? Harris Family Adopts Three Abused Sisters
THE FOREVER FAMILY? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PARENTS WANT TO RETURN THEIR ADOPTIVE CHILDREN, CITING CONCERN FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY BECAUSE OF DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR?
It was a story that made international headlines: an Arkansas state legislator “re-homed” two of his three adoptive daughters after fearing for his own biological children’s safety. The scandal became the first time many had heard of the national concern of “re-homing,” which in many states is putting adopted kids in a new home with little regulatory oversight. In this case, the girls were handed to a man who turned out to be a pedophile.

Surviving Foster Care: 2 Brothers, 2 Different Paths

Photographs by Max Whittaker/Prime Collective

For the brothers Terrick and Joseph Bakhit, childhood in Southern California was a precarious and often brutal experience: a mother addicted to crack and often in jail, a grandmother who beat them. In 2007, when Terrick was 12 and Joseph was 11, they ran away to an older sister’s home but eventually landed in foster care, where a good outcome was anything but certain.

Although child-care officials had promised to keep them together, they were separated and ended up in a series of foster families or group homes. At 17, Terrick, demoralized and unruly, “made the stupid decision of stealing a group home car,” was arrested and sentenced to juvenile detention for 11 months. Adrift upon release and without financial or personal support, he ended up homeless and addicted to crystal meth. To read more on this story by Celina Fang Click Here.
