We are parents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters who remain inspired by the power of community and family. Together, with the many youth we share our lives with, we are TuTTie’s Place.
TuTTie’s Place is a community-based group foster care model. Most unique about us is our desire to work with young men amid the environment in which they currently live and will likely return even if they successfully graduate from the program.
By meeting and teaching children where they are, the lessons and behaviors we encourage are easily translated into real life dynamics, rather than just theory. When our boys learn how to make good decisions in the midst of a bad environment, personal responsibility becomes an acquired skill, not merely a phrase.
We know good life skills are not learned overnight. Along with providing a nurturing family environment, ideal for therapeutic and educational needs, we also provide a variety of artistic and recreational outlets. We celebrate birthdays together and other milestones, participate as active partners in our children’s schooling, provide opportunities for community service and encourage the boys to have pets.
We want our boys to leave TuTTie’s Place being well-rounded and able to become contributors to their communities. To learn more about TuTTies’s Place, please visit our website: www.tuttiesplace.org
