Kairos is Greek, meaning "an opportune moment for action and transformation." After working with adult survivors at Eden's Glory, we found that trafficking in
most cases starts before the age of 18. This is also confirmed in research
that shows trafficking of minors usually occurs between the ages of 12-14 for
girls and 7-9 for boys. Many of the survivors we serve through Eden's Glory could have found freedom from trafficking years earlier if
someone would have recognized the signs and provided support and care. We want to fill the gap to protect
children and youth in our community. In response, we launched Foster Kairos from our office space in Greenville, IL.
We serve minors between the ages of 5-17 who have experienced trauma or who have been trafficked. We provide care for these minors in a Christ-centered, relational, trauma-informed environment. Children and teens are provided with free, individual therapy focused on healing from their abuse and trauma. They are also provided with group therapy focused on life-skills such as fostering safe boundaries, developing coping skills, and creating safety plans.
We come alongside parents, caretakers, and foster parents to provide support and specialized training to assist caretakers in caring for minors who have experienced extensive trauma.
We believe that true and real healing comes from Jesus. Through free, Christ-centered, trauma-focused therapy we help minors work through their trauma to find freedom from their pain. We do this in relationship, in a safe environment, with qualified staff who are focused on holistic care. Our end goal is that children and teens will not end up needing a residential home for adult survivors in the future, thus putting ourselves out
