If you are frustrated with youth disrupting multiple placements OR feel like we "Band-Aid" the issues without creating real healing and change, REMEMBER:


You can continue what's been done, or you can try a new approach with Anu Family Services. All of the services offered at Anu are based these beliefs:

  • Losses must be grieved: Until they are, youth will continue to act out the loss through pain-based behaviors (i.e. AWOL, substance abuse, aggression)
  • All behavior is communication: It is our job as foster parents and workers to LISTEN and understand the root cause of those pain-based behaviors.
  • Disconnecting is a protective response: Healthy brains become unable to connect after multiple losses. Healing the relational trauma caused by loss is crucial for the youth to connect.
  • Reconnecting is healing: Relational trauma can only be healed in the context of a relationship, so we reconnect youth with people they have loved and lost.
  • Pain-based behaviors are not willful: Youth are showing normal, expected responses to trauma and rather than shame or blame, we help them heal.
