Mission Statement

The mission of TuTTie's Place is to establish and maintain a sense of family, stability and direction by enhancing the child's adjustment to his new environment and to enhance his ability to cope with the tumultuous separation from his home and biological family. TuTTie’s Place holistically treats the mind, body and energy of each individual child, enabling him to accept and value his imperfections and by enabling him to successfully cope with society upon his graduation from foster care.

TuTTie's Place provides community-based residential foster care in a group home setting to young men, aged 14 - 21, in Baltimore, Maryland. We currently provide a home to 42 boys in five separate houses. We are grateful to be able to provide help and support to the youth of our community. They need all of us as they grow into adulthood.

Ideally, all children would grow up with their parents, but when that is not possible, we offer a loving home, guidance, patience and mentoring.

Description

We are parents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters who remain inspired by the power of community and family. Together, with the many youth we share our lives with, we are TuTTie’s Place.

TuTTie’s Place is a community-based group foster care model. Most unique about us is our desire to work with young men amid the environment in which they currently live and will likely return even if they successfully graduate from the program.

By meeting and teaching children where they are, the lessons and behaviors we encourage are easily translated into real life dynamics, rather than just theory. When our boys learn how to make good decisions in the midst of a bad environment, personal responsibility becomes an acquired skill, not merely a phrase.

We know good life skills are not learned overnight. Along with providing a nurturing family environment, ideal for therapeutic and educational needs, we also provide a variety of artistic and recreational outlets.
