Etching is a multifaceted work that helps children from 0-18 years of age that have an educational, emotional, social or physical need. During Jesus' brief time on earth, He loved on children and taught adults to value them. Etching desires to model that love and care in practical ways to children and their family through the provision of everyday needs, mentoring, trauma training and education support.

There is a large population of children both in the US and abroad that have experienced trauma, have physical, social/emotional, or academic needs.
How are you solving it?
Through physical (food, clothing), emotional (hands on with evidence based interventions), social (one on one or small group activities) and education (support for schooling, training of families and professionals)

I am a nationally certified school psychologist, dual certified teacher, and a TBRI Practitioner.
What is the urgency?
There are many children that have a need both in Alaska where I live, locally in the Matanuska Susitna Borough and internationally with our expatriate families and national children.
