Sleep Supports

Sleep deprived kids and parents are not at their best! In fact, one person's lack of sleep can derail the entire family. The reality is that many kids who come into care have disrupted sleep patterns stemming from early trauma, disrupted attachments, mental health challenges, prenatal substance exposure and more. Help is on the way below! Please reference our Anxiety, Food Issues/Nutrition, Mindfulness, Play, Sensory Supports, Technology & Kids and Trauma pages for more resources.

"...we wonder, 'Are we ever going to get sleep?' And yet, it doesn't matter if you don't get sleep. It's an honor to take care of them." ~ Angelina Jolie, celebrity adoptive parent
