2018 TORCH AWARDS Dangerfield Group Home
When we think about adding value to the life of a student, we have to do that in a holistic manner. Unfortunately, sometimes a child’s home environment can not provide the resources or the emotional stability they need to thrive. If they have experienced trauma, abandonment or abuse, they are placed in the foster care system or group home until foster families are found for them. In a group home environment, they can receive behavioral health care, tutoring and much needed emotional support. One such agency is the Dangerfield Group Home. They have been operating three group homes in the Crenshaw area since 1985. Providing a safety net for those in need.
