Social/Emotional

Many of our youth have high absenteeism rates due to a lack of clothing and school uniforms. We offer school uniforms to our beneficiaries through generous clothing drives and donations. The uniforms we provide not only improve school attendance, but also builds self-esteem and a sense of empowerment.

Guidance and Counseling

Social and emotional support is essential for our youth. Many have been through serious loss or separation from their immediate family and have no one to turn to. We make sure they have someone to turn to whenever they need.

Empowerment

We empower our youth through goal setting and confidence building activities.

Crisis Intervention 

Our youth face immediate and long term crises often. SOCOBA is a safe place they can go to if they need to avoid a difficult situation. Our counselors are available to talk them through difficult situations and help them see reasonable courses of action.

Scenario Strategizing

Many of our youth face situations that place them in vulnerable positions, often leading to risky behavior and reliance on “Sugar Daddies” or intergenerational relationships. Our drama and choir groups allow participants to act out situations and paint a message to others through self-expression, song, and acting.

Clothing

Many of our youth have high absenteeism rates due to a lack of clothing and school uniforms. We offer free clothing and uniforms to our beneficiaries through generous clothing drives and donations. The clothing we provide not only improves school attendance, but also builds self-esteem and a sense of empowerment.
