  2. When children from hard places struggle to reach their potential in school, it can be really difficult. Sometimes it can lead to behavioral challenges that are actually rooted in their learning. We believe that every child is uniquely made, so it makes sense that our brains are wired differently too. Bridge Educational Services a Lifeline resource, uses 21st century science to understand how our brain works to help children in their ability to learn. We want to come alongside you and your children with learning challenges to assess, train, tutor and advocate to help them reach their full potential.

  3. A training session that will educate and inform you on what human trafficking is, who it affects, and what you can do. Every year in Alabama, there are approximately 10,000 victims of sex trafficking. Of those 10,000, 57% are children. These astounding numbers result in over $110 million being spent on commercial sex in just the greater Birmingham area alone. Statistics show that 1 in 9 children are approached online by a predator. This can ultimately lead to sexual abuse, exploitation, and eventually sex trafficking. Our communities need hope, particularly a belief that our society and world can choose a different path besides one where countless children are preyed upon, exploited, and destroyed because of greed. We want to shine the hope that together we can awaken from our sleep to recognize the horrific nightmare in which our children are living. Together with knowledge we can reclaim our children and rise from the ashes of this devastation. Join us as we reveal the truth about what human trafficking really looks like in our community. Blanket Fort Hope believes that we can forge a path of purpose and hope for our children.

    Blanket Fort Hope exists to serve children of sex trafficking. Our primary goal is to build Alabama’s first and only crisis center devoted to these precious child victims. This center is crucial to serving victims who spend most of their lives in what we call “the red zone”. By providing trauma services and safe housing, we can be sure to provide them with a real shot at a future.

  5. Parents are often scared and uncomfortable when they observe sexual reactivity in children. The topic of sexuality instills fear and trembling in many, and parents often find themselves ill equipped to address this topic with their biological children, let alone with children that may have experienced harm in this way in the past. This CE seeks to educate, empower, and equip parents to understand why a child may engage in these behaviors and what to do to help. Parents will hear a new way to think about their child’s behavior, as well as learn practical strategies for how to respond. Additionally, parents will hear how to set expectations and boundaries in such a way that will help to set their children up for success in their homes from the beginning of a placement.
