Why We Serve
U-Nique Purpose, Inc., only reason for serving, is to eliminate child abuse and/or neglect in all families, communities, and/or different systems.
U-Nique Purpose, Inc. mission is to provide hands on opportunities for at risk foster care youth to develop a healthy sense of Self, identify with a career, and build a healthy social circle!
“Stranger Danger” means nothing to youth in foster care. Many times youth in PMC have lived in a minimum of 5 different placements. Although they are very resilient, many don’t have any idea of who they should be. Their norm is rejection. Data states, within two years of leaving care over 50% become incarcerated, pregnant, and/or homeless.
Who are these youth and children….According to the data African American children were much more likely than Anglo or Hispanic children to be reported as victims of child abuse or neglect and are removed from their families at more than twice the rate of the general population. Confirmed studies show African Americans are no more likely to abuse their children than any other race. African American children comprised 11.6% of the general child population of Texas but accounted for almost 28.0% of all children awaiting adoption.
Although, Child Protective Services is committed to eliminating these disparities, children are still being harmed.
