Hello, I'm Jeff Natalie, welcome to ErieKIDS! This website and the ErieKIDS
organization that it represents is a result of a dream to bring back strong
families to our communities. I was fortunate to be educated at Case Western
Reserve University and trained in family therapy at Philadelphia Child
Guidance and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, some of the leading
institutes for education in the world. But I received no better training
than by my mother and father, a traditional Sicilian couple with traditional
European values. The most important of which is the value of "Family" and
all that go along with it, like respect, loyalty and most of all, love.
Those values are reflected in the mission of ErieKIDS. We
are a non-profit organization that
community education and information services in a culturally relevant way to
promote the mental, emotional and social health and wellness of children and
families. And that's what we are about, building healthy families, giving
them a chance to learn what I learned under the leadership of a strong
mother and father.
How we help kids and families is the best part of all. I have assembled the
greatest board of directors. These are passionate, dedicated parents,
experts and professionals who believe in the core mission of ErieKIDS. They
agree that we need to be innovative in educating families. That's why we not
only offer spoken presentations to schools, parent groups, universities and
agencies, we make MOVIES, write books and articles, publish audio and video
logs. All of which we donate to the schools where Erie kids attend....for
free! We train therapists to treat the toughest families better. We consult
with agencies on how to reach their goals and get their word out, too.
We've won awards, too. One that I'm particularly proud of was a result of a
collaboration with another kid agency.
award garnered praise by US Senators and Representatives.
There's so much more, so take your time and have a look at all we have to
offer. Thanks for your support of ErieKIDS. We're not just about Erie's
kids, we're here for your kids too, no matter where you live!
Here's to you and your family!
