Child & Family Resources, Inc.
April 21, 2011

I offer my highest recommendation for Child and Family Resources and two of their programs that I have used for the past two years.

I first heard about the Camp HH and Happy Hours after school program through my son’s elementary school. I am a single mom with a full-time job and my son has unique medical issues so I was very concerned about the care and supervision that he would receive after school or after school was out during summer weekdays while I was still at work.

My son is 10 years old and has been participating in Happy Hours and Camp HH for the past two years. The counselors at both Happy Hours and Camp HH offered a warm welcome and were prepared to supervise his medical needs while at the same time they treated him just like all the other children. Because of his diabetes the counselors became educated about his needs, stayed in regular contact with me about his blood sugar levels, how he was feeling, what he was eating or drinking, etc. They included him in everything and always had projects, games, field trips and other activities for the children to get involved in.

I have noticed improved confidence and independence in my son. He has made many good friends and looks forward to going to both Happy Hours during school and Camp HH in the summer. The greatest part for me is my sense of confidence in the staff when I drop him off, knowing that he is in good hands. The “icing on the cake” of course is that he has a great time and enjoys being there.

The Great!
