Neighborhood Children’s Program
The Neighborhood Children’s Program provides an atmosphere of love and second chances for all the children who pass through our doors. We offer both an after-school program and a summer camp for kindergarten children through 5th grade students free of charge. Throughout the year, over 150 children are given educational help, self-esteem building, positive role models and good, wholesome fun. Transportation to and from the program and is provided as well as educational field trips and a nurturing, loving environment.
Children must live in the general area surrounding our 1100 West Capitol St location and attend one of the local schools.
- Priority is given to children currently living in our shelters and those who have attended our program previously.
- Enrollment for the after school program begins in July.
- Sixty children (ages 4 to 12) are involved in the Neighborhood Children’s Program.
- The program focuses on providing a safe place for these children to go after school. It also provides homework help, encouragement, structure and recreation in a loving environment.
- Stewpot staff pick up the children from school, take them to Stewpot for the after-school program and then drive them to their homes.
- In 2013, more than 150 children participated in the summer camp and school year ministries offered by Stewpot’s Neighborhood Children’s Program.
