SUMMER ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES
Did you know that nearly 60% of the children living at The Children’s Home do not know how to swim; 30% of them will need educational assistance and specialized tutoring during the summer months to catch up. Over 80% have never participated in organized sports..
You can help to make a difference in the lives of the children residing on our campus this summer by donating funds to support summer enrichment activities that will help enhance their lives and teach them valuable life skills. Your support will make the difference between their ability to achieve their educational goals, build self-confidence, learn critical social interaction skills and be given the chance to learn something new about themselves!
The Children's Home receives funding support to provide the basic necessities that our children rely on each day to survive. But in order to provide enhanced services that serve the mental, social and emotional needs of our children, we rely on your support. Please consider supporting our summer enrichment activities and help create life-long memories for our children.
SPONSOR A CHILD
The Children’s Home provides a recreation program with various activities including learning how to swim and pool safety, arts and crafts, sports clinics, educational and learning support to help build social and emotional skills. Sponsor a child for $275 this summer and provide these critical summer enrichment activities.
There are children residing on our campus who have earned the opportunity to participate in summer camps in the community. Only a select group of children are eligible to attend, but they need your help. We need $2,000 in support to provide scholarships to send these children to community camps this summer and provide them a chance to learn interaction and social skills with other children in the community.
