By June 30, 2022No Comments

SCHNECKSVILLE, PA (June 8, 2022) – What’s the best way to mark a 140-year anniversary?  For KidsPeace, it’s assembling a chorus of voices explaining what the organization is and who it helps today.  

The latest issue of KidsPeace’s flagship publication Healing Magazine features a special anniversary section, “Voices of KidsPeace at 140,” in honor of the anniversary of the organization’s founding in 1882.  From associates to supporters to former clients, the fourteen essays in the special section (one for each decade of the organization’s history) paint a picture of KidsPeace’s caring and impact on lives amid the challenges faced by both its associates and the youth they help.  

In addition, the Spring-Summer 2022 issue discusses:

  • The possible link between adverse childhood experiences and compassion fatigue among caregivers in adulthood 
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic reminded us that resilience may be our hidden superpower
  • Advice on navigating the bureaucracy around special education 
  • And how one state is making access to health services a vital part of caring for foster children.

Healing Magazine is published twice a year, and seeks to inform children’s professionals, educators, policymakers, and parents — anyone who wants to see kids grow, thrive and succeed in adult life.  You can view the latest issue, its articles and the special anniversary section at – where you can also subscribe for free to receive future issues of Healing Magazine.
