All of our funds go towards innovative programs targeting at-risk youth. We work closely with local organizations that specialize in in mental health of young people. Our programs support struggling teens through every step of the healing process.
D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 is a first-of-its-kind program being piloted in partnership with the experts at San Diego Youth Services and the San Diego Center for Children.
We start the conversation with teens. The first stage of D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 is suicide prevention awareness outreach in the classroom. All students benefit from an understanding of positive mental health.
Through suicide prevention awareness outreach, the program will identify students in need of support. These at-risk teens are guided through a supportive healing process.
Healing doesn’t happen all at once, but D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 starts the process. At-risk students are provided with specialized support and tools to guide the through the healing process.
Parents and family members are a crucial part of the healing process. D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 integrates family workshops into the process, to increase awareness and make sure students have a safety net surrounding them at home.
The mental health experts at the San Diego Center for Children use the Empowered Family Model of therapy, an evidence-based therapy method specifically designed to help teens and families heal together.
As a part of the San Diego Center for Children’s healing path for teens and their families, an innovative app will be integrated into their case management and therapy process.
At this very moment, D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 is being implemented throughout San Diego. After its pilot run, this program will be duplicable in schools throughout the country, and the world.
