Supplies and Field Trip Funds Needed for Children this Summer
May 28, 2015
You can help a child this summer by sponsoring their field trip or donating supplies for their therapy and pool time!
Our summer programs
Our Summer Programs serve children with emotional and behavioral problems associated with trauma, abuse, neglect, or mental health concerns. New this year due to community need, we will also serve children with ADHD and Anxiety Disorders. While participating in the summer programs, children receive group counseling, therapy, and much needed social activities such as swimming, physical activities, art classes and field trips.
We need donations for field trips, so that every child has the opportunity to participate. We also need supplies for therapists to use while working with children as well as pool supplies.
Many of the children we serve have parents who struggle financially to provide basic necessities, so a field trip with St. Joseph Orphanage may be the extent of their summer recreation. A field trip or swimming in the pool at St. Joseph Orphanage can provide important new experiences and help the children work on their social skills.
