We are focused on sharing our love and passion for the needs and development of children through EMPOWERMENT, ADVOCACY, EDUCATION, COLLABORATION, and SUPPORT. We believe that in order to help children, we must first take time to understand each child's rich life background: developmental history, caregiver support structure, the cultural lens through which the child identifies, socioeconomic needs, and the child's strengths and interests. Because if we don't take the time to truly understand the whole child, we cannot provide the comprehensive, individualized care we so firmly believe in. When you work with us, you will feel surrounded by support.
Santosha is an ancient Sanskrit word that means contentment and satisfaction; accepting one’s circumstances as they are and, then and only then, moving forward towards the future. “Santosha is rooted in the desire to avoid anything negative to self, to others, to all living beings and to nature. It is not the state of abandonment or being without any needs, rather the state of neither taking too much nor taking less than what one needs, one of contented optimism."
So when it came to choosing a name for the business, we could not think of a better word to describe her wellness center's mission and goals. We want to work with children and families of all backgrounds and accept them where they are at. Everyone has something to improve or work on of course, but we believe that all those who come to us must first start by accepting where ever they are, and know that they are enough and that they are worthy just as they are, regardless of what changes or improvements may happen as they move forward with us.
