Giving Children Hope to Hold Onto

The positive effect of Barium Springs Home for Children's services can be seen in children across the region. Nicholas*, age 10, suffered abuse so severe that he developed post-traumatic stress disorder, making him prone to violent outbursts. Desperation has led him to consider suicide. Regular counseling provided in a group-home setting taught him to cope with anxiety and manage his emotions. The curtain of fear gently pulled away, revealing a charming sense of humor.

Raped at age 11, Allison* was forced to deal with the trauma without parental support. Seeking to ease her pain, she quickly turned to drugs. Authorities called Barium Springs Home for Children when, drug-addicted, Allison (now age 14) stopped attending school. There was nothing to pack to prepare for her move to Barium Springs. No clothes, no toiletries, no sheets and blankets. Her house was as empty as her heart. After a long struggle, Allison is now drug-free and is getting the support she needs to build a better life for herself.

Barium Springs staff members have countless similar stories. The quiet little girl with shining brown eyes who hunches protectively over the food she gets in preschool. The formerly downtrodden teen who now dreams of being an astronaut. The 12-year-old who looks forward to going to "regular" school again, once he can learn to control his anger.

Due to the ever-changing field of funding and funding cuts, Barium Springs Home for Children relies more and more on support from the community. "Our supporters help us grow each year-nearly doubling in size over the past three years," Bell says. "We are growing so we are able to help more children and families. And that's what it's all about, what it's always been about -- helping the children."
