Our mission is to create a wholesome and safe environment for children, where they can have and opportunity to be restored to a more rewarding quality of life. Our goal is to effectively match the needs of each child in our care with appropriate placement in a nurturing home environment. We will assess each child and provide a treatment plan to address their education, medical, dental, psychological and social strengths and needs. This goal is accomplished in cooperation with out trained and certified foster parents. New Millennium provides 24 hours support, seven days a week. An additional goal of the Agency is to collaborate with County Social Workers to facilitate placement goals and Permanency Planning. We will support our children during the maturation process toward reunification or emancipation, and accomplish this by fostering an interdependent relationship with our community partners.
New Millennium provides quality education services to children in our care. A variety of state and county education resources will be utilized. In addition to academics, we will focus on raising self-esteem, teaching values and job skills for our teenage children. State grant funding programs allow our children the opportunity to receive in-home tutoring twice weekly throughout the school year. Sacramento State University has created a Guardian Scholars Program which is a comprehensive program of financial aid, life coaching, mentoring, housing and personalized attention, geared toward assisting foster youth in a brighter future and higher education. We are pleased to be able to collaborate with Sacramento State University in providing an opportunity for our foster youth to obtain higher education.
