In Service of the Youngest Kids
Knowing that children who are exposed to traumatic life events are at significant risks for developing serious, long-lasting problems across multiple areas of development, PCM seeks to address mental health of the youngest in our community through development of activities, outreach programs, and resources for all families of young children.
PCM, with its longstanding expertise in therapeutic play, will work with local partners who specialize in supporting children impacted by trauma to create workshops, staff development programs, and family resources that infuse the therapeutic power of play into the acute needs of their specific populations and address those in the wider community.
INAGURAL PARTNERS INCLUDE:
Rhode Island’s only bereavement center dedicated to serving children and teens, ages three to eighteen, and their families.
Adoption Rhode Island creates safety, belonging, and permanency for adopted and foster children, vulnerable youth, and families through compassionate services, advocacy and education.
