Let us build them a playroom
With toys and books and wheels
Where little hearts can heal
We invite you to help us build a Happy Playroom for the children of the New Star Family Justice Center. They come to us with sadness in their eyes from the violence they witnessed at home. They seek to hear a comforting voice and the reassurance of a smile that says, “You are safe here”.
In the US, 5 million children are exposed to domestic violence each year. These children live in our neighborhood, go to school with our children, yet we are not aware of their condition. With no intervention many are destined to suffer a life of depression, addiction and even suicide.
We at the Family Justice Center are committed to help children transform a childhood filled with trauma into one filled with strength, love and freedom. It begins right here, in the Happy Playroom! Here, through play and the professional support of a mental health counselor, a child can explore life events and learn healthy behaviors that promote healing.
We are building a Happy Playroom for the children of the New Star Family Justice Center, but we cannot do it without your help! Consider opening your heart to help heal theirs. Your donation - no matter the size - will provide toys, books, and wheels of Hope.
