Provide a fun outing for a child this summer for $20

Childhood is a time of exploring new places and making memories. But for kids like Jonah who come from abusive homes, family outings are rare or never happen at all.

You can provide Jonah and kids like him with the opportunity to experience fun and connection through an off-campus outing. Your $20 gift can help Jonah know what it’s like to just be a kid.

Jonah hasn’t known the anticipation of going to a ballgame with his dad. He hasn’t experienced the thrill of a waterpark with parents cheering him on as he conquers the biggest slide. Instead, he’s felt the pain of rejection and loneliness.

 

You can change Jonah’s story.

Your gift of $20 can help Jonah feel cherished and wanted. To give him and other kids like him a day off from worry and a day on for good, old-fashioned fun.

Off-campus outings give Jonah a break from the hard work he’s doing in trauma therapy. Activities like bowling and canoeing can also introduce youth from hard places to new hobbies and help prepare them to return to community life.

Your gift can be the start of replacing Jonah’s painful past with safety and delight. It all starts with your gift of $20.

Give one child a fun and encouraging outing!

ABOUT CCHO

Christian Children's Home of Ohio (CCHO) is a local nonprofit organization that has provided opportunities for donors like you to help abused and neglected children for more than 50 years. Based in Wooster, OH and serving all of Ohio – including Wayne County, Summit County, Stark County, Cuyahoga County, Franklin County and the surrounding areas – CCHO is a safe place for kids who have suffered extreme forms of physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse, as well as survivors of sex trafficking. Initially licensed as a foster care/group home for children, CCHO now has five cottages on its campus that are home to as many as 46 kids, ages 6-17, who have often been abused by parents or other people they trust. During their time with this faith-based charity in Ohio, children learn the tools they need to overcome the trauma they've experienced through various forms of therapeutic approaches (including recreational therapy, art therapy and equine therapy) as well as social, spiritual and educational opportunities designed to aid the child with the healing process, model for them how a healthy family functions, develop coping and life skills, and introduce them to Jesus Christ.
