Therapeutic Toy Fund

Give 716 Day was the perfect kick-off to our new Therapeutic Toy Fund. Thanks to generous donors like you, and community stakeholders, we raised over $1,100 to support the youth in our care!

 

Our need for these vital items still exists. We're starting a new campaign to purchase brand new items for our counselors, staff, clients and students. These funds will allow us to purchase therapeutic toys for use during counseling sessions, sensory toys to calm down, on a stressful day, and sports equipment to exercise their mind and body.

A weighted pressure vest, blanket or ball offers proprioceptive information to a child's muscles and joints. Proprioceptive input allows us to understand where our body is in relation to the external world. It is organizing to the brain and plays an important role in self-regulation, balance, coordination, posture, body awareness, eye-hand coordination, and the ability to attend and focus. Most children crave proprioceptive input!
