New Perspectives - Dec, 1995 Issue #37 

KID'S inc.
Kramer's Individualized Developmental Services
Steven Kramer, Director
Spokane, Washington
509-448-2290 

Just opening it's doors, Kid's inc. is designed to provide family style living for up to six teen-age boys. There will be at least two adults in the home with the boys at all times. The boys will attend nearby Ferris High School, on Spokane's South side, and be active in an extra curricular activity. Steve Kramer will work directly with each grade level counselor and child to develop an individualized plan of action to expedite each child toward graduation. 

"We work hard and the reward is we play hard through activities. The philosophy is basic. If the child stays in school and maintains good scholastic achievements, and can learn to provide assistance around the home such as daily chores he is rewarded with activities. There is also a time each month that the kids can give back to the community ... through community service projects.... The kids involved get the community recognition and build their self worth and esteem while helping others.... Sporting events are attended on a regular basis for those boys who are showing progress in moral and family values." 

Steve already has his first boy. Scholarships are available through "friends of KID'S".
