The Tree House Project was established in Southern California in 2013. Inspired by our daughter, we searched for ways we could bring a much needed resource to the community. Though we have worked in the fields of psychology and criminology for many years, we still felt as if we were not doing enough for the community. Children and adults across the US often go without many basic needs every day. While we know there is nothing we can do to resolve this situation for everyone, our solution was to reach as many people as possible. We hope to teach our daughter the compassion all should embrace for one another.
