Focus on Children

Kids are our focus in these programs which promote education, family activities, and in-home support services to help parents strengthen their parenting skills and improve family interactions. It is another example of how we’re able to establish safer, healthier home environments that spark the transition to self-sufficiency.

 Focus on Children

We recognize that the chaos of homelessness disrupts a child’s academic progress. Through our After School, Summer Camp and Mentoring Programs every effort is made to help the children on an individual basis. Opportunities to learn, to explore, and to discover talents are integral to the program’s educational and physical activity curriculum.

The after school program and summer camp are available to all school-aged children (ages 6-12). The after school program offers computer classes, tutoring, help with homework, and a lending library. Our summer camp provides six weeks of learning opportunities through field trips, science camp, music and art appreciation, and swimming.  View a video scrapbook from our 2013 Sisters Place Summer Camp on our Facebook page.

 

Additionally Teen Groups are provided for the older children – to support them through their teen years.
