The SOAC Foundation will be working to identify and overcome obstacles that all-too-frequently impede the parent-child relationship. These obstacles are numerous and difficult to overcome: poverty; acrimony between parents of the children; substance abuse or other unfortunate circumstances; violence in homes, on the streets, and in our schools. The legacy for our children too often is a new generation of dysfunctional families, attachment disorders, low self-esteem, depression, gangs, teenage pregnancies, school dropouts, and so on. The SOAC Foundation strongly believes that children are life’s most precious gifts and that their childhood should be a time filled with joy, laughter, growth, and endless possibilities. The root to a healthy child is to nurture their inner spirit with time, presence, gentle encouragement, and plenty of love. Mission "We help families grow stronger"
