The Kiwanis Club of Point Pleasant hosted a Valentine's Night Out for the youth at the Collier Group Home. Cheryl Kasper, LCSW, volunteered her time to engage the youth in an activity surrounding Chakras. The youth then reflected on what Chakra spoke to them and channeled that into their artwork. They then enjoyed dinner and dessert prepared by Kiwanis member Patty Camme of the She Shed. Afterward, the youth had fun playing the saran wrap ball game, where they won prizes! The Kiwanis Club of Point Pleasant gifted the youth a gift bag filled with self-care items such as lip balm, color street nails, and a laptop plug-in aromatherapy diffuser!
The youth had such a great time, and the Kiwanis Club was so happy to provide them with a fun night out!
We are so grateful for supporters like Kevin Kelly Salon, Divine Design Health, and the Dardin Foundation for their support of the Collier Residential Program. Because of you, the adolescent girls and young women of Collier House and Collier Group Home have safe housing, food, access to in-depth counseling, and most importantly, a loving community cheering them on as they work toward a successful future!

We both are in the business of enhancing the lives of the people we serve.
Thanks to Seaview Orthopaedics, Collier House will receive $10,000 a year for the next 4 years! On behalf of our current and future residents, we thank you for your generosity!
On Tuesday, May 10th the women from the Divine Design Health Group came to the group home to spend time with our youth. They brought a fabulous meal for all to enjoy! The group shared what each individual was proud of and what they have accomplished during their time at the group home. Annmarie DeRosa, Social Worker, then led both groups (youth and Devine Design Health Group) in creating vision boards for the future. We asked the youth to create a vision that they wanted to achieve by the end of the summer and for the adult group, how they envisioned supporting the youth in the residential program. This process provided inspiration to our friends at the Divine Design Health Group to see how they can support our youth in achieving their goals. This activity was inspirational to all and a beautiful bonding moment!
