Volunteering is a significant component of our program. The girls participate in service twice a month. This gives them an opportunity to look beyond themselves and give back to their community. Some of the service projects include opportunities to volunteer at some of the following venues:
- local fitness events
- food banks
- nature centers and gardens
- animal shelters
- nursing homes
- various other community awareness events
Our intention, through residential treatment for depression, is to create an environment where they are constantly learning through experiencing. Through this experiential model, the insights they gain become a very powerful tool that they can apply to their daily lives. As they are continually challenged in a number of different realms, our hope is that the girls gain a better understanding of themselves as a whole person.
