Our team has been working on creative ways we can stay connected to the children and families we love to serve. In January of 2019 we launched Community Connections. Community Connections is a program consisting of mini interactive exhibits for children that pop-up at partner organizations and events throughout our community. These exhibits inspire hands-on exploration and play while focusing on building empathy & kindness, social-emotional development, cultural expression, and imaginative & dramatic play. Community Connections activities are free and open to the public. Please see our calendar of dates belowand be sure to like us on Facebook for details about upcoming Community Connections activities taking place in the community. If you are interested in partnering with us or have questions about Community Connections, please email Katie.
