'Community House' Happenings
May 2015
The Countdown Begins
We are gearing up for our 4th Annual Family Fun Walk & Wellness Fair to be held on Sunday, September 27th. 
 
Enjoy free refreshments, prizes and fun activities on the 2-mile walk along the historic Savin Rock boardwalk followed by a wellness fair featuring more than 20 local vendors inside the Savin Rock Conference Center.
 
The primary mission of this action-packed, family-oriented event is to inspire and promote healthy living among children and families and, most importantly, to generate financial support for the vital programs and services we offer including:
 
Head Start: School Readiness pre-school program for children from low-income families.
Children & Youth Services:  Before and after school program for school-aged children.
Community Connections:  Residential and day programs for adults with developmental disabilities.
 
The Community House relies on 85% of government subsidy, and with the proposed government funding cuts, it is crucial for us to increase our fundraising efforts to meet the needs of our community.
 
We hope you consider joining us this year by either sponsoring, walking or volunteering. Click here to find out more.
