WHAT IS ENTERPHASE?
Enterphase is made up of a bunch of people who all work together to help kids. Kids at Enterphase are there mostly because difficult things have happened to them in their lives. It was not their fault, but it might have effected them and made things harder for them. To help kids with these kinds of problems, Enterphase has residences (houses) where kids can live when they can’t live at home, and classrooms for kids who may be having problems at school.
Some kids need a place to live and a classroom, while other kids may just need a place to live and may go to a community school. The Enterphase houses or residences are long term homes. That means kids can stay as long as they need to.
It is important that every kid feel safe. When kids feel safe, they can focus on other things that are more fun or on things that needs to be talked about to help them. So, there is an important rule in all homes and class-rooms about violence. Violence is when people use their words or their bodies to hurt other people.
So, no violence is allowed, whether that is verbal violence (with words) or physical violence (with body). This is taken very seriously by ‘staff’, who are the adults that help kids in the homes.
