Children4Tomorrow has developed the LEAP Program to educate individuals on emotional abuse and restoring skills to enhance a child’s future. The LEAP Program is especially for parents, teachers, professionals and adults that are interested in learning about the effects of emotional abuse on children. The goal is to train individuals to understand and recognize emotional child abuse. Individuals learn how to battle the effects of the abuse, recognize a child in an abusive situation, and regain hope for a brighter future. Nurturing skills is essential in reducing or eliminating the development of other serious behavioral problems.
In 2009, my perception of mental and emotional abuse was forever changed after witnessing firsthand the devastating effects and personal turmoil it was bringing to two children close to my heart. It saddened me that I was unable to rescue these children or even provide funding to help them. Instead of getting bitter about the situation I set out to do something about it. Collaborating with my best friend and daughter, we began researching different avenues and options we could take to help other children break from the shackles of mental and emotional abuse. In our research, we came across material on how to file for a corporation and how to file for a 501(c) (3) non-profit entity and a spark was ignited. Despite banter from others that this process would take at least a year or more, on February 5, 2010, only three months after we started, God opened a door and we had an incorporated, non-profit organization, Children 4 Tomorrow.
