STRUGGLING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
Children from hard places—a phrase that captures experiences of developmental trauma, neglect, or family disruption—often struggle. Difficult experiences can impair development. This leads to a need for intervention beyond the scope of individual families.
Cono gives families and their children a place of hope and reconciliation; a place to move beyond struggle and conflict. We follow Christ into the world attending to those whose lives have been disrupted, relationships dissolved, and faith development hindered; to those suffering the effects of trauma.
Cono is a community where healing begins. It is a safe place, where the heart of the adolescent is given voice, spiritual growth takes place, where learning and maturity flourish.
Former student: Four years after I stepped onto that Cono campus, I graduated with plans for the future. It did not seem like a reality to me or anyone else when I first arrived. I am thankful for Cono because it helped me grow up and learn how to live a life with God at the front and center.
