We are a dedicated mix of mothers, advocates, and professionals who have navigated a mental health system that has failed our children. We have all spent countless years trying to help and alleviate their struggles, but have been met with barriers and roadblocks at every attempt. With limited or no support from agencies and most insurance companies, the invisible children are now lost young adults.
With nowhere else to turn for help, we all looked inward and thought, “The system is all wrong. It is way too complicated. These young adults are one step away from succeeding and reaching their full potential. Everyone wants to be heard. Everyone wants to be loved. Everyone wants respect. Why not build our own healing community for these individuals and meet them where they are to get them where they deserve to be?
And so Kindness Heals Here was born.
To support young men 18+ who suffer from an invisible (hidden) disability to find their purpose in life. We are committed to meeting them where they are and treating them holistically as individuals, not by their diagnosis. They will receive an individualized healing plan that focuses on their intellectual, social, emotional, physical and spiritual selves. Our healing community will provide either a stepping stone to independence or a place to call home where kindness will always prevail.
We envision a world where young adults struggling to find their life’s purpose are defined by their potential, not their behavior, and are treated with kindness, compassion, and respect, not blindness.
In simple terms, a disability that no-one can see. These individual’s challenges impact their mental health, neurological health, and physical health. They have been labeled with a variety of neurological conditions, learning challenges, and developmental disorders which present themselves in behaviors ranging from embarrassing, unacceptable, to criminal, when placed in situations that they are unable to navigate. Recent research has shown that despite the multiple labels, and misdiagnosis, they are a result of the distinct and unique ways in which each individual’s brain is wired. Today, this is referred to as Neurodiversity.
