Hope transforms fear into confidence.

 Watching your teen face criminal charges is hard…

You were never meant to go through this alone.


The journey a parent faces when their teen has criminal allegations is scary. In the beginning stages, parents need additional resources to confidently move through the process. Without the proper resources, parents are left feeling helpless, scared, and unsure of how to best support their child.


The highlight reel of social media never reveals our greatest struggles. Instead, it shows a steady stream of our proudest moments as parents. The problem is when a teen suddenly makes a decision a parent is not proud of, it feels as if you’re the only parent it has ever happened to.  That kind of shame keeps you from reaching out to others for support. 


A child in crisis can have a traumatic effect on the entire family. Common feelings experienced by people in trauma may include:

  • a high state of alert
  • anxiety
  • emotional sensitivity
  • fatigue 
  • detachment
  • protection of family members
