Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide

Kim Ruffin fell in love with the outdoors climbing trees, playing on dirt mounds, and riding bicycles off homemade ramps in flip-flops. Inspired by a family legacy of nature stewardship, she became an educator and author of the book Black on Earth: African-American Ecoliterary Traditions (University of Georgia Press). A desire to open more doors for nature connection led her to become a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide. She is excited about inviting people to encounter other forms of nature and each other. Through her company, Cardinal Encounters, she celebrates the joys of life on earth.

A Home Within

For the last twenty years, A Home Within has been the only national organization dedicated solely to ensuring the emotional well-being of foster children. They provide weekly psychotherapy, free of charge, to current and former foster children, for as long as it takes. No one ages out of A Home Within. They also provide resources to support adults working with or caring for vulnerable children and youth. A Home Within envisions a world in which every foster child has a relationship with at least one consistent, caring adult. Because relationships heal.
