KEEP THE YOUTH HOME
Author Darby West has a heartfelt passion to reach to families that struggle with at risk children. She and her team have started “The Stay at home campaign”
She is dedicated to reaching out to the youth that have or are at risk of running away.
Because Mrs. West knows that statistics show that many runaway youths are more vulnerable to prostitution, drugs, and ultimately death she and her team vigorously work with organizations to establish a united family that may be struggling within their own interior walls.
Mrs. West believes that no family deserves to be judged because of their life style she teaches a curriculum that is about" love and acceptance" rather than what many youth feel today “Hated and Judged”.
She also teaches that one can empower oneself to defeat adversity and gain success.
Her primary mission and vision is to give each child that she works with the security to love themselves and to be empowered to know without a doubt they are somebody and are worthy to be loved.
