This summer, Saint Louise House has focused on providing opportunities to build community, self-esteem, and confidence among the teens living here through a program of weekly field trips. The result has been a summer of very special firsts for many of the youth living at Saint Louise House:
- a teen bowled for the first time and discovered a previously hidden talent;
- two teens went off a diving board for the first time ever with coaching and support from their peers;
- another teen was afraid to go down a water slide but faced her fears and had the time of her life!
- rock climbing was a first for all!
Your support has made this summer of firsts possible for the teens living at Saint Louise House. With these experiences behind them, they will start the school year with confidence, increased self-esteem, and new supportive relationships.
