We focus on keeping children in families wherever possible, and providing loving care for them in small family-style homes, only when absolutely necessary.
TST has grown out of the tireless work of so many, in the years since founder Bekka Ross Russell arrived in 2010 and met Mama Pendo (Martha Ayo).
All that we do would not be possible without our wonderful team of over 50 staff. From drivers to caregivers, social workers to accountants – our staff are the lifeblood of The Small Things.
