SelfActualizeME, Inc. is a...

Compassionate community center that is designed to address the many needs of children and families.  Our organization is aware that these needs are complicated and layered involving multiple factors. Therefore we have created a model to working with at risk children, adolescents, and adults who have been impacted, by poverty, drugs, trauma, neglect, incarceration, and violence in an after school program environment.   Our model of self-actualization takes Maslow's model one step further with deciphering that a client-centered approach is not enough to take on the arduous battle of poverty; it requires a family-centered approach to achieve self-actualization and positive development.  It is strong families that are essential to avoiding problems such as academic failure, and mental disorders that may have a life-long impact on functioning.  SelfActualizeMe, Inc. values that the family exerts a powerful influence on the developing child and that this impact continues into adolescence to a greater degree than previously believed. Yet, at the same time, there has been a decline in the quality of the child-family environment. Gaining a better understanding of the potentially modifiable health- promoting features of the family will ultimately aid in the development of science-based parenting programs to help strengthen families. SelfActuaizeMe inc. understands that when families are referred out for services that they end up getting lost in the system and their needs are never met.  SelfActualizeMe assesses each family members needs and make sure those needs are serviced within the community.
