Child Guidance Center Raising Funds to Refurnish Therapeutic Group Home
The Child Guidance Center (www.child-guidance.org) has announced a fundraising initiative with the objective of reaching $25,000 in donations to provide study, wooden furniture for the boys’ rooms at their Therapeutic Group Home.
The Therapeutic Group Home provides residential treatment and intensive outpatient services for boys, ages 12-18, who have experienced trauma. It has been in existence for almost 25 years and the furniture in the boys’ bedrooms desperately needs to be replaced. Almost every room needs a new desk, large wardrobe, a dresser, and bedside table.
To understand the impact of this program, here is an excerpt from a letter written by one boy’s grandparents; “Our child is not the same child who came to Child Guidance that first day. He instead has been given the tools needed to become successful in life and has also learned the impact that his poor choices had on himself and others. He has once again made us aware that we do have the best kid in the world and he just needed some special help at a particularly difficult time in his life. Our family will be forever grateful to Child Guidance for what they have done for our child and family.”
