Thanks to The Woodstock Chimes Fund

June 28, 2019

Crossroads Center for Children is delighted to share with our readers that we’ve received a grant from The Woodstock Chimes Fund to help deliver important social skills development programming to our students.

The Woodstock Chimes Fund  is a charitable arm of the Kvistad Foundation. Gary and Diane Kvistad have supported the arts and humanitarian organizations since 1986. This is the second year in a row that Crossroads is a Kvistad grant recipient.

Our readers know how important grants are to our organization.As a nonprofit organization, we work hard to acquire items that might be taken for granted in other school settings.

This grant is going to help buy some of the supplies we need throughout the year to address social skills development for our students. This is an area that is incredibly important for our students and is targeted extensively throughout the school. Teaching children to communicate  functionally, to interact with others, to play in groups… skills such as these are a high priority for our teachers and therapists. Skills such as these will give our students the means to be successful in their homes and communities.

Social and play skills can be taught in many settings. Frequently skills are worked on in art groups, centers, speech sessions, motor activities, music and circle activities. Really any time throughout the day! P.E.C.s supplies, art supplies, music materials, balls and so on are needed and this grant will help. So many thanks to the Kvistads and the Woodstock Chimes Fund for helping Crossroads Center for Children!
