Teen Reach Greencastle PA is trained under the national organization Teen Reach to provide camp and mentor programs to teens in our community. Royal Familiy KIDS follows the same format for a younger population. Together, our Greencastle locations serve children (6-11) and teens (12-18) in the foster care system or with troubled pasts.
The mission is to “Confront Abuse” and “Provide Hope for a Future.” We do this through building relationships, providing positive memories, exemplifying family and love, and helping to build trust, self-value, teamwork, and leadership. By confronting the abuse and providing hope, we can break the cycle of abuse. And due to the longevity of our programs, graduates of Teen Reach the opportunity to volunteer with Royal Family KIDS, replacing the cycle of abuse with the cycle of mentorship!
