Our mission in working with children and teens is straightforward -- To help create Fun, Friendship & Community! Our caring and effective approach uses a unique platform of play to provide enrichment and recreation activities in concert with therapeutic support. This important combination of ours helps children to blossom personally and build friendships in each of our programs.
Our secret to engaging kids is to weave aspects of therapy into the fun of our recreational group activities to help the kids build relationships with their peers. The Meeting House programs are designed to enhance a child’s resiliency, self-esteem and social skills as well as expose them to opportunities for artistic expression, sports and games. On Mondays and Wednesdays, The Meeting House team works with students at The Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School in the lunch room during their lunch period. This program offers a chance for students in grades K-5 to receive social and emotional support to help children to feel connected and included and to provide an opportunity for them to practice conversation and pragmatic language skills including verbal and non verbal communication.
