Help with the Imagination Playground!

Imagination Playground is a breakthrough block-based system designed to transform children's lives through play.  Through the generosity of Building Healthy Families' supporters, an Imagination Playground was introduced at our Kids' Fair in September 2012!  And through our partnership with the the Office of Neighborhoods and Families, we have use of space for the playground.

But we still need volunteers to help supervise the playground.  Are you the kind of person who wants to make an investment in the lives of children in your community?  Watch this video to learn how the Imagination Playground helps children develop what they need to succeed in school and in life.  It only takes a few hours on a Saturday to give kids a life-changing opportunity to grow and have fun.    Sign up here or call us at 860.375.0121 to find out more.  Check out our facebook page to see if the Imagination Playground will be open this week.
