Throughout the month of April our Health and Wellness Advocate Ms. Margie has been hard at work with lots of health initiatives around CAC!
CAC's social work intern presented to several ladies at our last Health Matters class.The topic was Trauma, and it's impact on psychological development. A wonderful discussion followed, and our parents with experience in foster care shared their experiences.
CAC assesses BMI, blood pressure and vision screening on our of our children. All kids learn about healthy nutrition and the value of exercise at CAC and we arrange for the kids in need to get glasses.
Additionally, the children are learning how to measure the pH of the hydroponic system so our plants continue to grow well. Our seedlings have done terrific! They are learning about "hardening off" plants grown indoors by placing them outdoors for a few hours each day to prepare them for transfer in the garden beds.
