As we continue to develop our activities calendar for CityWalk, we are getting responses from several organizations and ministries that want to provide activities and programs for our youngest residents. CityWalk has 22 two-bedroom units that will be home to families with children.
Last week, Johnice Woods, Kevin Flagg and I met with the staff of Rainbow Days, where the mission is “to provide children living in high-risk situations with the skills and support they need to overcome adversity and stay drug free.” Kelly Wierzbinski, Family Connection program manager, and Brandon Dawson, Children, Youth and Family Services Specialist, sat down with us to explain their program and its successes. We were inspired and very impressed by their passion to encourage and empower children through creative and effective group sessions, camps and community activities. We left the meeting extremely excited about offering the Rainbow Days program and are looking forward to offering many more programs like it to the kids at CityWalk. You can find out more about Rainbow Days here.
We can’t wait to see the Kids Room at CityWalk full of children playing, building friendships and benefiting from the programs and activities we have planned. It’s very important that we invest in our youngest residents and we hope to make an impact in their lives while they are living at CityWalk.
If you, your organization or your church would like to offer a program or host an activity for children at CityWalk, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214.573.2570.
