The mission of the Children’s Success Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, is to advance the work of the Nurtured Heart Approach®, a dynamic relationship-focused methodology that builds Inner Wealth® in children, empowering them to channel their intensity in productive ways, ensuring their successful future.
Our vision is to provide the training, resources and support necessary to enable parents, educators, and treatment professionals to transform the challenges of working with “intense” children into creative, collaborative relationships, in homes, schools and communities across the globe. The Foundation supports NHA goals in the areas of Training, Research and Evaluation, Community Collaboration, and Project Implementation.
The Children’s Success Foundation fosters the work of the Nurtured Heart Approach® by conducting training programs to support parents in building Inner Wealth in their children, educators formally implement the approach in school systems, and help therapeutic professionals meet the unique mental health needs of “intense” children. In the last 20 years, the Nurtured Heart Approach has been adopted in realms of parenting and education around the world and has found its way into thousands of classrooms, as well as a myriad of other high-needs child advocacy services, such as special education, foster care and juvenile justice systems.
