School Based Services
Shield Bearer believes that many great family services are best delivered where the children are, in a school based setting. School based services focus on strengthen children by encouraging parent child interaction. Shield Bearer serves preschools, head starts, elementary, middle and high school students during the regular school day.
Over 10,000 high school students have successfully completed the Dating Violence Prevention program. One in three adolescents have experienced dating violence and over half of all high school students have witnessed dating violence or know someone who has been a victim of dating violence. Shield Bearer equips young women and men with the tools to recognize and seek help for “red flags” that might lead to dating violence situations for themselves or their friends.
Strong Fathers Strong Families
More than 1200 fathers were served in the Strong Fathers Strong Families programs in headstarts, elementaries and middle schools last year. This parent involvement program creates interactive and meaningful events that improve academic performance and reduce behavioral acting out in students. Shield Bearer is proud to be the provider of this nationally acclaimed program in the Greater Houston area.
