Family RESOURCES

With empathy and kindness, we provide a safe space for children to engage in meaningful fun activities that enhance their social-emotional development. Led by community volunteers, our in-person social wellness activities are age-friendly, medically safe, and easy to implement in various settings.

Our programs infuse arts, crafts, music, theater, and movement directly to medically vulnerable children. Our creative methodology helps children express, create, and heal in an open, supportive environment by providing them with opportunities to explore mindfulness, mind-body connection, provide skills for understanding frustration, create space to gain autonomy, promote coping skills, and space for growth.

By doing so, we build social-emotional wellness and cope with daily life stressors exacerbated by their circumstance.

Additionally, by partnering with hundreds of nonprofits across the country, we are able to assist families in receiving the support they need.

Moving is often an exciting time for families that are shifting to a new home, but the transition can be considerable challenge for kids. The thought of saying goodbye to friends, leaving your home, starting a new school, and being the 'new kid' can be overwhelming for children. The stress they might experience can make the moving process as a parent even more difficult. We created a comprehensive guide for moving with kids that could be useful for parents shifting to a new environment.
