What kids (and the rest of us) need now

It's true, you reap what you sow. If we handle kids with power and control, that's what we get back. What happens if we collaborate with them -- as partners -- instead? Lives in the Balance is devoted to moving things in that very direction. Our model is life-changing. Our programs are life-saving. Our resources are free. Our research is compelling. And there's a lot more in the pipeline.


What's Up With the New Website?

You'll find everything from our old website on this new one...but Lives in the Balance has expanded into many exciting, impactful new realms, so there's lots more for you to explore and more ways for you to get involved.

What Happened to the Canoe?

Lots of folks who were new to Lives in the Balance got the idea that we were a whitewater outfitting company! The new logo communicates more directly what we're really about.

Walking Tours!

Our Walking Tours -- one for parents and another for educators -- are a great way to learn about the CPS model through streaming video.
