BENEFITING: SETTLEMENT CLUB
Do you remember what made your childhood feel special? Was it snow cones, summer camps or just knowing you were somewhere safe?
We often hear from the teenage girls that we serve that they've never had a birthday party, been fishing or attended a concert before they came to live at The Settlement Home for Children. While many of us take activities like this for granted, these experiences can make all the difference for a child with a background of severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect.
Our kids participate in swimming lessons, dance classes, summer camps, horseback riding and many other meaningful activities. Positive experiences like these help our kids feel confident and cared for so they are able to heal.
Your donation makes it possible for us to continue providing our children with enriching opportunities for the summertime at The Settlement Home! We ask for your financial support to help us create positive childhood memories like the ones you cherish.
The Settlement Home for Children is a non-profit agency that will celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2016. Our mission is promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. Ninety-three cents of every dollar donated to The Settlement Home goes directly to programs and services for the children.
