An Update for Friends of Highfields · June 22, 2016
Families That Play Together Stay Together
Thanks to your support, families have a safe place to play at Highfields. 
   Playing together as a family is a great way for parents and children to bond. When families play together they can open up more easily, enjoy each other's company and create special memories.
   At Highfields, we understand how important it is for families to play together. That's why we dedicate plenty of time during Family Treatment Weekends for parents and their children to do fun activities together, like playing sports, board games, outdoor activities, or riding the zip line!
   Our goal at Highfields is to help keep families together. Residential students, however, spend most of their time away from their families while they are completing the program. 

Caring for Kiara
Kiara is getting the help she needs thanks to you!
Raising a child with a mental health illness can be challenging but also very rewarding. Thanks to your support of Highfields, we can give families the tools to provide the best possible care for their children.
   Paula and her husband Brian have provided foster care in their home for many years. They adopted five children and have two biological children of their own. All of their children receive love and affection, but their daughter Kiara, age 9, needs extra care. 
   Kiara is 9 years old and suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome. Her birth mother has a severe chromosome disorder, and is unable to take care of her. Paula and Brian have legal guardianship over Kiara. They go above and beyond to make sure Kiara has the support that she needs.
   Kiara also has a genetic chromosome disorder and is diagnosed with ADHD.  She is hyperactive and doesn't stay focused on activities. Because of this, she has many challenges to overcome.
