Studies have shown for decades that, while adult expatriates may return to life as usual in their home countries, their children almost never do.

For those who have lived for any length of time in a country other than the one which issued your passport, spent time as a relief worker, in government foreign service, as a member of the armed forces, or even a church mission trip — coming "home" to a country that feels anything but homelike is often a major transition.
We help plan strategies for children, teens, adults and entire families to transition well — whether they're coming "home" forever, for college or just visiting and returning to a field assignment.
We debrief third culture kids — adult (ATCKs) and child (TCKs) as well as those who have had short- or longer-term cross-cultural experiences. Your stories are important, your insights needed, your experiences valued by Hand in Hand! We'll lend a hand and help you entering your next season of life well.
