At the Children’s Hope’s all girl Washington Campus in Levelland, volunteerism is the name of the game. Twice a month five different girls from the campus are given the opportunity to work with several churches through the Family Promise program. Through the program, the girls have an opportunity to prepare a meal for a homeless family and visit with that family for a few hours.

Children’s Hope is a beacon for youth in Texas. It is an organization that provides foster and adoption services. Of particular importance is Children’s Hope’s two residential treatment centers in the Panhandle Plains region. They provide services to children with emotional disturbances. Their goal is to provide children with the tools they need to be resilient in the face of childhood trauma, to function as model citizens, and to be able to function within their families as happy, healthy youth.  Their therapeutic framework is Trauma Informed-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Within families, children rely on their parents for essential training that will help them grow into productive adults. Primary socialization occurs within the family, with children taking cues from their parents about appropriate behaviors within different contexts. Children also learn from parents' responses what situations are safe and unsafe and tend to model their behaviors after their parents' actions. The children that come to Children's Hope Residential Services come from abusive and neglectful homes, either maladaptive behaviors adopted from their interactions with family or with no model for behavior because of their severe neglect. Children's Hope provides a relationship-based model of intervention that allows these children develop the building blocks for later healthy adult lives.
