We are participating in "Paddle for Plummer", a 1.5 mile Standup paddle board "race" to raise money for Plummer Home.
Join us on the water or come out to cheer the paddlers on. You can participate in a floating yoga class or stretch out your legs on spin bikes with an ocean view! Your donation will support Plummer Home and its mission to "provide adolescents innovative support and services, in a safe and nurturing environment and help to build the relationships and skills necessary for successful adulthood."
Our goal is to raise $800 AND to remain standing on the board for the full 1.5 miles!
Plummer Home is located in Salem, MA and suppports children, primarily teens, who have been removed from their families due to abuse or neglect. Many of their kids have been in state care for years and have moved more than 15 times. They also serve youth at risk of being removed from their families.
They focus on finding kids permanent families, preparing kids with skills and connecting them with their communities. They currently have a group home for 12 boys (13-18 years), a supported apartment for young men ages 16-22 in the same facility as the group home and community-based one bedroom apartments for young men or women who turned 18 while in group or foster care. They provide foster care arrangements for 17 girls and boys birth to 22 (expected to grow to 50 children in by 2017) and they have a Teen Resource Center for youth at risk of being removed from their family for having minor brushes with the law (serving 40-60 weekly).
