With the end of the year nearly upon us, our annual Holiday Wishes program is starting to kick into high gear. We thought it might be handy to have an all-encompassing guide to the program in an easily accessible place, so read on for everything you might possibly want to know about Holiday Wishes, including how you can help!

Every family who receives CARE House services is eligible for our Holiday Wishes program.

I was 17 when I first heard of CARE House. I was in high school and pregnant for the first time, and one day their Early Head Start program visited to make a presentation, and I signed up. Each week, my case worker Bridget met with me to get ready for my daughter, Olivia. After she was born, Bridget helped me make sure Olivia would develop correctly. The support was great and, 18 months later, when I became pregnant with my son Josh, she helped coach me through the pregnancy.

We’d like you to meet Ben, a CARE House Front Desk Volunteer!

Everything at CARE House, from the architecture of our building to our client intake procedure, was designed with a sensitivity to the needs of children.

It’s important that the kids who come to us, whether it’s for weekly therapy or a forensic interview, feels safe and comfortable as soon as they walk through our door.

The Front Desk Volunteer is an essential part of accomplishing that goal.
