Every child needs a hero. Hurt and abused children need superheroes.

Family & Children’s Services Child Abuse and Trauma Services – also known as CATS – leaps giant hurdles to provide hope and healing to nearly 5,000 children each year who have experienced abuse, neglect or trauma.

One of CATS’ methods for helping children work through traumatic events is by having them draw and tell their stories. Through the power of storytelling, CATS children can find healing and the path to a brighter future. “The Life of Firestike” is one such story – written and drawn by an eight-year-old client in the CATS program.

Firestrike’s mother (Flamer) was in her addiction for 14 years before joining F&CS’s Women in Recovery (WIR) program (Superhero School). As Firestrike went through therapy, he learned coping skills and how to deal with anger and sadness.

Flamer recently graduated from WIR’s 23rd graduating class.
