An overview of DFYF programs & services.

“If your story was a video game that you had to conquer, what would the levels be?”

With that one question a DFYF counselor began to help Daniel, a playful nine year old, create his own trauma narrative. Daniel created and illustrated a five level video game that allowed him to replace disturbing memories with affirming ones. DFYF provides programs for Children Who Witness Violence, Children of Murdered Parents & Siblings, and PROMISES, sexual abuse survivors; all helping youth and families to heal.

Crittenton Center youth give us an enthusiastic tour
