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 graduation with a $25 or $50 gift card so the 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).
