If we are together nothing is impossible. If we are divided all will fail. ~Winston Churchill
Kofi Services is a culturally-specific, school-based mental health program for African-American youth in grades 2-8 and their families who are experiencing difficulty in school, personal relationships, or other areas of their lives. Kofi's goals are to improve behavior in the classroom and at home, and to maintain or improve academic performance and attendance. This is accomplished by providing cultural affirmation, mentorship, and role modeling; increasing parental invovlement in the child's education and school activities; and inspiring hope for the future.
