Adaya
by Chosen

Our Adaya program helps youths without a permanent placement know they are valued and cherished. Our personnel coaches engage with these young people, not just as therapists, but as partners to help them build attachment and start a journey towards healing. Coaches are going to the youth, wherever their temporary placement is, to ensure they receive the trauma-responsive intervention they need and deserve.

When a placement is identified for these youth, Chosen’s staff “follow the child,” helping the transition to a family, ensuring stability and higher success rates. This essential component is critical to help youth heal in safe, loving, and permanent relationships.

Trauma impacts a developing brain. The resulting behavioral, academic, and relational challenges need intervention for children to grow into emotionally healthy adults. Without a deep understanding of how abuse, neglect, grief, and loss affect children, efforts will likely fall short.

Our staff, trained and experienced in using best-in-class trauma education, is passionate about sharing this knowledge with anyone wanting to serve children and adults who have experienced trauma.
