About REACH 907
We exist to strengthen children and teens in foster care. Our faith-based vision is to bring them life-changing experiences through summer programs, one-on-one mentoring and group mentoring via monthly clubs. Our next goal is to provide basic life skill classes for our teens to equip, build confidence and improve their future possibilities. We have implemented the trauma-informed model of care Trust-Based Relational Intervention and have provided community trainings to strengthen homes raising children with a history of trauma.

"This email [about TRAC - teen camp] literally brought tears. He will be very excited. He really
enjoyed RFK [the camp for younger kids]. This is so wonderful! Thank you SO much!"

C attended camp last summer with Royal Family Kids and it
was hands down the best and most impactful experience he has had. He oozed
excitement and contentment. He came away more positive and confident. Every
aspect of the trauma-informed approach benefits C."
A. C., Foster Parent
