Children’s Home Society of Washington has received a $7,500 grant from the Anthem Foundation to provide therapeutic art materials and training support for Child & Family Counseling in Chelan and Douglas counties.
An enormous thank you to the Anthem Foundation for their kindness and generosity to our local children and families. This grant will allow our counselors to provide therapeutic art support, which will enrich our counseling offerings to children and families across our service area.
Children’s Home Society of Washington in Chelan and Douglas counties serves children and youth 0-21 in the Child & Family Counseling program. All of the children and youth in this program have a diagnosed mental health disorder.
Many of the children and youth in the Child & Family Counseling program are also enrolled in the WISe (Wraparound with Intensive Services) program. WISe offers community-based wrap around services to the children and their families. This individualized program includes youth peer support, family peer support, case management and mental health counseling.
