For everyone that was part of Genesis Summer Camp this year, the magic remains. Camp is more than squirt guns and slip n'slide. It's an opportunity for the children at Genesis to "just be kids", if only for a few days. Because we are dedicated to preserving the privacy of the children that need us, we can't share their smiles but can allow a glimpse of what is nothing less than our best effort to restore hope. And so, for all those kids that spent that special time with us, this is "My Wish" . . . . . . .

"POSITIVITY IS CONTAGIOUS" was the theme for the 2010 Genesis Staff Retreat. The importance of maintaining a positive attitude in the workplace, most especially with the children we serve, was emphasized. In addition to break-out sessions dedicated to brainstorming activities for the upcoming summer camp, there were team building exercises that included a little friendly competition.
Everyone left the retreat refreshed and eager to "PASS ON A POSITIVE ATTITUDE". Next month's summer camp for the kids is shaping up to be the best one ever.

Do my dreaming and my scheming, lie awake and pray,
Now it's dark and I'm alone, but I won't be afraid,
The first few chords of the Beach Boys' favorite, "In My Room" return many of us to the days when our rooms, securely tucked into the home of our parents, were the center of the universe. The lyrics speak to having a place of safety, a refuge.
Unfortunately, many of the children arriving at Genesis Youth Crisis Center, Inc., have never experienced the sense of security that comes from having a safe room of their own. As construction on our new facility continues at a rapid pace, we have begun to turn our attention to those items necessary to turn a simple room into a sanctuary for a child in need.
We hope you have many wonderful memories of the safe places of your childhood and that you will help us create a place, one room at a time, where our children will finally know a safe haven that fosters hope.
