“Ask any child and they will tell you time after time that they would choose to be with an animal when they are sad or upset.” – the Peacock Foundation Founder, Lisa Peacock.
Imagine showing up at school and always feeling “different” or “out of place”. This is how many of the at-risk youth who seek help at the Peacock Foundation feel. Their lives are not “normal” and they don’t have anyone to talk to. They often find themselves suicidal, depressed and aggressive. This lonely and desperate place can sabotage their experience with school, family, and their future. This is where The Peacock Foundation steps in. Trained therapists and community animal teams bring smiles and compassion to young lives that need a little inspiration and care. Sometimes all they need is someone to say, “You are worth my time.” The eight-week program builds self-esteem, teaches these kids how to ask for help and deal with their emotions in a healthy way.
