Your Donations will Help Support Many of Our Initiatives and Programs

Campus Renovations

St. Christopher’s is committed to providing the most comfortable, safe, structured and welcoming environment for all residents in an uplifting home away from home. The need for a positive environment is integral to help children reach their full potential in becoming well-rounded, productive leaders of the future. The proposed Cottage Renovation Project is an expansion of our ongoing efforts to transform the cottages on all three of our campuses and to create a standard across the board.

Animal-Assisted Therapy Program

We would be grateful for your support as we move forward on our endeavors to expand REACH and our Animal-Assisted Therapy Program. This program empowers our children with the ability to interact with animals. Animal-Assisted Therapy has shown to decrease distress during emotional times, promote calmness in a child with post-traumatic stress disorder, and increase attention and positive behaviors in children with pervasive development disorders.
