Due to the limited number staff and the time it takes to sanitize toys after each visitor, we are limiting access to the toys in our waiting areas. We have added items to our AMAZON WISH LIST that may be provided to each child to keep busy and entertained while waiting AND they can take home with them. The Carousel Center will only accept toys in original packaging.

To Celebrate Healing…

Some children take weeks, some take months or longer on their healing journey. When they are ready, we celebrate their hard work with a small graduation ceremony.  There is usually cake and ice cream or some other special treat of the child’s choosing. Each ceremony is as unique as the child. For many of our children they have never had a birthday cake or a celebration just for them…so this ceremony is very, very special for all involved.  You can sponsor a graduation with a $25 or $50 gift card so the our Therapist can purchase what they need to make that child feel special and loved.

To Say Thank You to our Hardworking Team…

Donate or sponsor a delivered meal for 8-10 hard-working staff and our partners – Dept of Social Services, Law Enforcement, District Attorney’s office.  (Sorry we can’t accept home cooked food, food must come from a licensed restaurant).  (No more than 10 are allowed in our offices at one time).
