#GivingTuesday is here!
November 29, 2016
From this Thanksgiving through #GivingTuesday in 2016, give back by helping ANDRUS to develop our Therapeutic Recreation Program! The Ropes Challenge Course is one aspect of our Therapeutic Recreation Program which seeks to provide opportunities for the children we serve to build on trust, communication, collaboration, team work, and personal achievement. Some children find traditional talk therapy difficult or uncomfortable, especially when it comes to sharing with a group. Many of these same children are able to use the challenges presented to them through Ropes Course elements as metaphors for the challenges they have faced in the past and continue to tackle. We are seeking innovative and creative avenues to provide therapy, recreation, self-esteem bolstering, and fun for the children in our care. The Ropes Challenge Course is one of our best avenues for achieving this goal.
Join the creative solution today by making a gift to the children of ANDRUS by supporting the Ropes Challenge Course Adventure Based Counseling Program!
