Mission

Our mission strive to develop resilience and coping skills that enables youth, their families and communities to attain and maintain sustainable protective factors that set the goals necessary to break cycles of trauma as experienced through poverty, mental and behavioral health, social norms, public health inequity, academic and learning challenges & failure, abuse, violence, and drug use.

Vision

Our vision is to break cycles of trauma, reduce mental health and behavioral health challenges, and increase strategic support from individuals to systems levels for change.  Holistic Elevation continues to create a legacy that can help change the way the world views and treats trauma in vulnerable populations.

Why We Exist

We exist to offer a pathway to community's full potential by breaking cycles of societal abnormality that has, over time proven to be the cause of intergenerational trauma, ongoing trauma, repetition of low educational attainment, teen or single parenting, criminality, gang affiliation, poverty, unemployment and many other obstacles to social progress. We are poised to break the cycles of violence, substance use/abuse, poor intra-family relationship, low self-worth and –esteem by introducing various educational, prevention, early intervention, and intensive therapy camps and activities for teens, children, their families and communities.

At Holistic Elevation, we acknowledge that internalized low self-worth and inferiority complexes are a result of negative environmental influences. This mindset is one of the dominant causes of suicide ideation, bullying, drugs and alcohol usage, cruelty towards others and eventually crime. We position our professionals and licensed humanitarian services to intervene in this fast acute inclination. Most available services/resources lack the intensity and duration needed to permanently change the life trajectories of children and youth experiencing trauma.

 

Our Approach

To ensure that every individual grows from their challenges, our team implements what we call the Great Farmer’s Technique.  The Great Farmer’s Technique engages each child through creative strategies while also acknowledging their unique way of learning. Our creative program components are integrated with evidence-based programs and the youth’s life experience.

Our change-focus and relationship-based service model will address the needs of children, youth and their families and communities most in need of support. Our strategy is to change social abnormalities, unhealthy relationships, and increase positive self-image and peer to peer interaction with the goal of producing positive and productive citizens. 

 

Through our prevention education, counseling services, and professional development training:

 

  • We support youth in their development of positive habits and behaviors that contribute to a healthy mindset, positive relationships, and the skills to solve problems and grow through challenges associated with cycles of poverty, abuse, violence, and drug use. 

  • We support schools in becoming trauma-informed, inclusive, and positive learning environments. 

  • We acknowledge the full humanity of every young person and their supporters which we see as an essential component for meaningful progress that is often absent in other initiatives.
