To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.


This retreat happens one day each month and is designed for school age children who are affected by a loved ones’ drug or alcohol use.

What happens at the Children’s Resiliency Retreat?

Each of these monthly sessions includes educational and therapeutic knowledge, tools, and coping skills designed to help kids break the cycle of substance use disorders.

In addition to sessions that include fun, team building, and educational activities including the arts (music, crafts, dance, theater, etc.) as well as mindfulness activities, nature and adventure based learning, the children participate in healing circles and build skills they need to develop strength from their own resiliency. In this way, the CRR provides a unique opportunity to structure learning experiences in a safe environment in which kids and teens can explore their feelings, learn they are not alone, and recognize that the stressful things that might happen in their families are not their fault.

Through the program, children develop skills to help them plan for a healthy future, while creating connections to community and learn how to find emotional help and community resources when they need them.

The therapeutic sessions will be facilitated by licensed social workers; all other activities will be conducted by trained staff and trained volunteers. We are always looking for new volunteers to join us at the retreats – if you are interested in volunteering or referring a child, click here to email Monica Gallant, Director of Prevention Services, for more information.
