What is Being Done?

Our primary objective is to contribute to the social well-being of the community through services to individuals and groups of individuals who, because of personal and family problems, social conflicts, or who may become involved in the criminal justice system.

S, 0. C. Children in Motion, lnc.’s mentoring program is designed to create lasting behavior changes. We will provide the youth with the tools and techniques to help them face day-to-day, real-world challenges. We will focus our work on helping behaviorally troubled teens take responsibility for their actions and turn their behaviors around.

Our Counseling Center is a key element of what we offer youth and their parents, with a full range of faith-based counseling services.

S.O.C. Children in Motion, lnc., provides one-on-one training for parents. Parents will learn simple parenting tools that will show them how to help their teen handle their problems appropriately and own their own.

About S.O.C. Children in Motion

S.O.C. Children in Motion, lnc., was organized in 2003. Since its inception, S.O.C. has had hands-on experience working with over 20,000+ youths.

We are a community-based organization serving all youths throughout the city of Beaumont and the Golden Triangle. 95% of the youths served are at-risk youth from low-income households. S.0.C. Children in Motion, lnc.’s goal is to reach a child prior to their teenage years and to help mold them to become valued contributors as well as positive influences in their community.

We have implemented self-discipline and self esteem-building programs that teach personal safety and-instill morals and principles. S.O.C, also provides academic tutorials as well as educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities.

We are most concerned with fostering spiritual growth as a way to promote healing in the lives of at-risk youth,

We realize that without a relationship with God, at-risk youth do not have a chance to take control of their lives and make positive decisions about how to live.

Toward that end, we have established our Counseling Center, using faith-based techniques.
