Annual Family Programming

Back To School Celebration

All Community House youth participants are invited to join us to celebrate the start of a new school year! Back to school supplies will be provided, and youth participants will set goals for the coming year with Community House tutor-mentors. 

Family Dinner Series

Research has shown that time spent as a family over a meal positively contributes to both social-emotional wellness and academic success in children of all ages. At Community House we work to support family time through our family dinner series. We invite our families to join us for a meal, family friendly activities, and good conversation.
