Summer Camp for Homeless Kids

by Families Moving Forward

Summary

Summer Camp is a wonderful experience for any child. For the children living at Genesis Home it is an absolute necessity. Families housed in our facility are all working hard to get back on their feet. When school ends we want to provide summer camp opportunities for our kids. Providing a camp experience gives parents peace of mind, knowing their children are well cared for and engaged. This enables our parents to focus on their own goals of self-sufficiency and independence.

Challenge

If you are a child living in a homeless shelter with a family on a very limited income, the fact that school is out may cause anxiety and concern. What am I going to do all summer? Who is going to take care of me? What kinds of fun will I get to experience this summer when my parents are working?

Solution

Through our fundraising goal of $10,000 Genesis Home will be able to send every Genesis Home child to camp this summer. We will give these children a summer they will never forget and ensure that our parents are able to focus on newly acquired employment and personal goals for self-sufficiency.

Long-Term Impact

Genesis Home works to end homelessness for families with children by providing housing and supportive services to foster independence.
