Children, Families & Communities is an alliance of parents, professionals, and individuals who are passionately committed to providing creative opportunities for learning, growing and healing. We serve our communities through three distinct organizations: Lodestar Holistic Wellness; DTA Center for Learning and Growing; and Good Ideas™.
The Nature of Lodestar Holistic Wellness
Lodestar provides integrative medicine and education and models an inclusive approach to healing, a guiding light on your personal journey. We work with individuals and families to provide individualized opportunities for change, using the broad array of approaches in which we are trained. Holistic wellness services are effective for a variety of clients, so we serve people of all ages with a wide variety of wishes. Lodestar Holistic Wellness services are based on wishes for change, rather than the traditional deficit model based in problems.
The commonality amongst all the requests for this service is chronicity. How do we break out of fruitless cycles? How do we change physical health, relationship and emotional habits? How do we best support our children’s development without sacrificing self and while respecting who they are? How can we best achieve sobriety and maintain recovery in self, and support others in this? Drawing from Presence in Healing, Integrated Awareness®, CranioSacral Therapy, massage, and our Early Childhood training and experience, we meet people where they are at, and guide, assist and challenge them to create the changes they want.
DTA provides services and programs for children, families, family members and adults. We desire and set as our goal to have DTA services have some “hallmark” similarities as well as providing a venue for individual practitioners to express their strengths and talents. Some of these services are billable to insurance or other contractors.
The Good Ideas™ Program is designed to support small, new or developing programs with missions compatible to our own. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we can serve as fiscal agent, allowing donations to be received on behalf of the program. We offer donation reports, as well as support and guidance in non-profit organization.
