Supervisor, Therapeutic Recreation Center

During the time that our youth participate in recreation activities with community groups it opens up a new world for each of the youth. They feel like people care about them, that their lives count for something more that why they are now living in the foster care system. Many times the smiles on our youths faces and their ability to engaged with complete strangers reflects the importance of community involvement and their love for all young peoples lives. The impact of community groups to the lives of our youth gives them a positive memory and hope for their future. All the words in the world will never be able to reflect the joy when each of our youth smile instead of frown, laugh instead cry and engage in the activity instead of resisting and sitting on the side lines.
