Playtime’s Programming Expands

Kids And Family

67

The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project has announced that beginning in January, it will provide its trauma-informed play programming twice a week for the children living at My Sister’s Place, the District’s oldest domestic violence shelter. To ensure a strong launch, Playtime seeks volunteers to help create a welcoming and fun play space where children can de-stress, work through their emotions and simply be children. Volunteers receive in-depth training to work with children experiencing the trauma of domestic violence and homelessness. To find out more about becoming a volunteer, an info session is scheduled for Oct. 16, 6:30 p.m., at Woodridge Library, 1801 Hamlin St. NE.
