About Inspiring Recovery through Independent Success
Hello I'm Kasie Efantis, and my daughter Equeo and I are raising money to help launch I.R.I.S. Youth Center in Nevada. I.R.I.S. stands for Inspiring Recovery through Independent Success. And that's excactly what we do, help children see their value. For many the struggle to get from victim to survivor is difficult to begin much less complete. Most don't know how or where to start. Too many children are floundering in this situation and at Inspiring Recovery through Independent Success, we are here to help them reclaim and build self esteem in a safe, non-judgmental environment. We encourage the individual to move from survivor to thriver by providing a safe space for children between 10-17 to explore their own skills and talents, because after children hit that age range they are faced with so much pressure to just "deal with it". But they can't do it alone. Frequently, their means of "dealing with it," lands them in unhealthy situations and relationships, often leading into substance abuse, unhealthy relationships that continue a destructive cycle and criminal behavior. We help the children express themselves through creative outlets; wether it be in visual arts, music, writing, or even theatre. All proceeds will be used for building repairs, art and music supplies, music equipment, stage and theatre equipment, dance equipment, and writing materials. The goal is to have the money by September 8, 2016. The reason this means so much to me is because, not only am I a thriver after childhood trauma and abuse. My children are survivors. Thankful for those who helped us survive and learn to live, we have developed I.R.I.S as a way to pay that forward to prevent children from standing alone in this battle.
TOGETHER, WE'VE RAISED
