Welcome to CrimeFreeKids.com!
Only you can OWN YOUR FUTURE!
We have two goals: to help children who have been impacted by crime, and to prevent children from taking a path of crime. Lofty? You know it! Attainable? We think so!
Here’s what our site is all about…
There are two things that impact your life: 1) Things that people do TO you that you have no control over; and 2) Things that you choose to do yourself. We all fall into both
categories, and both can have positive and negative consequences. We want to share some ideas with you that will help focus on the positive and help to turn negative experiences
into positive ones.
First, if you have been the victim of a crime, or if you have a parent or loved one in prison, we’d like to help lessen the impact of this negative experience. These fall into
that first category – things that are beyond your control.
Second, there are choices you will face that can lead down a positive path or a negative path. We encourage you to make positive choices. This falls into the second category –
things that are completely in your control.
The following topics fall into both categories. How you respond to situations will make all the difference in the world. It’s not easy, we know. The prisons are full of young
people who thought, "It won’t happen to me." So are the cemeteries. We care about you. We want you to be in charge of your future. And we want it to be bright!
