Covid-19 has certainly put a damper on some of our activities, but this hasn’t stopped us from getting creative. We hosted a staff celebration, which our youth were also a part of. We were also able to bless a co-worker with a lovely baby shower. With the spring weather rolling in, we have been teaching our youth about spring and different cultures. We also had the opportunity to learn about which types of flowers were most suitable for our garden and climate. Our youth had a fun time planting the flowers and putting up a bird feeder! One of our wonderful staff member’s donated her time by making each youth and staff a mask to stay safe during the pandemic.
