Join KARA on our mission

KARA has partnered with a leading mental health company, Praestan Health, to provide at risk youth free access to a  digital and coaching mental health and wellbeing services for at-risk youth.

Portages is a powerful new tool for youth struggling with trauma and other mental health issues.

Homeless & LGBTQ youth, foster children, and youth in juvenile justice will be given preference for this project.

This three-part program is app based and self-learning (a form of artificial intelligence, it knows the user) and includes unlimited coaching with access to clinical visits (it is designed to manage most client issues without clinic visits) and provides immediate 24/7 service avoiding travel and waiting for clinic visits (especially in this time of COVID).

This program is scheduled to begin first quarter 2021 and will roll out as KARA funding is available.
