Spring is Just Around the Corner!

And so is completion of the All Star Campus!

Every day something new springs forth! We wanted you to see the amazing progress that’s happening right now. Enjoy!

Building a Future, One Brick at a Time

Would you like to be forever part of the Campus? We invite you to purchase a brick for $250 on which you may engrave your name and a message to encourage scores of children for the years to come.

Our Campus is coming together . . . brick by brick. Here is the beautiful pathway that flows from the Children’s Center to the cottages.

Springtime is planting time!

The brick pathway flows into the green space. Look at all the playground equipment! Soon children will be flying down the slide, playing hide and seek around the geometric cubes and practicing balance and friendship on the teeter totter. We eagerly await the transformative power of play!

Speaking of nature, look at these awesome photos of our vegetable garden! The talented folks of Eco Vets are doing an amazing job planting an ecological garden that will produce vegetables for the families living on campus. Native plants and flowers are interspersed with edible vegetables to ensure natural shade and control of pests and weeds. Camille, a navy veteran, and Christina, executive director of Eco Vets and an air force veteran, are bringing our garden to life! Thank you to our generous donor, Jan Schmidt, who underwrote this beautiful, life-sustaining vegetable garden
for our children to enjoy!

Our green space is overflowing with nature. A key piece of a trauma-informed environment is creating surroundings that promote healing. Spending time in nature has many healing properties and helps children and adults self regulate.
