BENEFITING: Faces Without Places

Shelley Werner

THE STORY:

Children who experience homelessness have no voice or choice regarding their housing situation. These children are along for a journey that may present many hardships that can often cause them to take on adult-like behaviors at a very young age. I need your help in order to provide children living in shelters during the summer months with an eight-week camp experience that facilitates creativity, discovery and laughter.
Faces without Places, a Cincinnati nonprofit, has provided such a camp for the last 14 years but is in need of funding in order to host the 2013 summer camp. Knowing that children experiencing homelessness move 7 to 8 times per year and are, on average, 2 to 3 years behind in their education was the impetus for which the camp was created. Certificated teachers are hired to deliver standards-based lessons in Reading and Math each morning and exploratory community-based activities and fieldtrips are provided each afternoon. On average, the camp will serve over 150 children in just 8 weeks. Each child receives two meals and a snack per day along with transportation, a swimsuit, beach towel, a pair of sandals and gym shoes and anything else that a child in transition and without a home may need.
Please join me in helping to make summer camp a reality to children who are often forgotten.
