People who stay at our emergency shelters and those who are in transitional programs spend many evening hours in the shelter environment. Enrichment and recreation activities help individuals to:
- Build personal skills to improve everyday living
- Find activities and outlets to reduce the stress of living in a shelter
- Help them know themselves better
- Have continued access to health providers and health and wellness information
- Learn more about communication skills
- Build positive attitudes about themselves to achieve fuller and happier lives
- Promote more positive relationships between parents and children
- Provide recreational and activity programs for both adults and children
Programs and presentations are screened and scheduled for all three shelters through the Volunteer Coordinator. Contact Ruth Fischer, Volunteer Coordinator, at (585) 262-7025 ext. 202 or email@example.com.
