Keeping Kids Active

Our campus pool is a favorite spot on hot summer days and our Multipurpose Building holds a full size gym with an indoor basketball court. The gym is used daily for many active games and on Fridays is transformed into a theater for “Movie night.” The Multipurpose Building also includes a “Trust Lounge” for video games and music lessons, an art room and a kitchen for cooking classes. 

Since the children’s length of stay is often unknown, we take them on as many off site outings as possible. We use gift cards to take the children skating, to the movies, the zoo, concerts and sporting events; providing both fun and meaningful activities to help each child begin to experience positive childhood memories. We are grateful for community partner support which enables us to keep our CRH kids active and on the go.

Many holiday celebrations take place as well. Each year the children celebrate Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and many December Holiday’s including Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, etc. As our children come from all different types of backgrounds we strive to ensure that each child is able to celebrate the holiday they are accustomed to.

In all, a combination of available funds (gift certificates), volunteers, community support, and our dedicated staff make so many fun activities possible. Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of our children and create memories for them to cherish.
