PLUMMER HOME RELEASES 5th ANNUAL HOLIDAY CD
For the 5th year in a row, youth from Plummer Home and our On Point program have recorded a holiday CD including several original tracks. Many of the youth had no prior musical training before participating in the Plummer Home music program. Click here to check out a sneak preview of one of the original songs written and performed by one of our kids!
FINDING FAMILIES FOR GIRLS AND BOYS; EXPANDING TO LOWELL
Teenagers without families are in trouble. Often these teens live in group homes or foster homes. Most of them have experienced trauma beyond what most of us can imagine. Some have moved so many times they can't remember the places they’ve lived, or the people they’ve lived with.
If these teens don’t find families before they leave state care, there is a good chance they will end up homeless or unemployed. The girls are likely to get pregnant at least once before they turn 24. The boys are likely to become parents. http://www.chapinhall.org/research/report/midwest-evaluation-adult-functioning-former-foster-youth
