Our program of the month for June is Family Connections!
Family Connections is a non-profit community-based counseling and family service agency. Every day, they help children, adults and families transform their lives for the better through the provision of innovative counseling, skill-building, training and prevention services. Their goal is to serve the complex needs of their communities, which includes early childhood social and emotional development, adolescent development and safety, trauma, mental illness, addiction, unemployment, poverty, domestic violence, child abuse and neglect.
Since 2015, Kula for Karma has been serving children ages 2-8 at Family Connections who have significant emotional and behavioral challenges. Our instructors over the years have made a real difference for these children who struggle with such difficulties as impulse control, history of abuse, delayed development and serious defiance. We are grateful to have such a passionate team of patient and energetic instructors to help spread Kula’s mission to such a special population (including our Teacher of the Month for June, Yukiko Murai).
