As the long summer days come to an end, we are all sad to say goodbye to the fun activities and vacations we have enjoyed. Here at CaseWorthy, we have enjoyed watching many of our clients serve those in need with summer events and camps – especially in our faith-based organizations. With the tools of CaseWorthy™ at their disposal, those serving in faith-based organizations are empowered to concentrate on those in need – instead of being debilitated by the challenges faith-based organizations face. CaseWorthy™, proven to be easy to implement, a powerful tool to help manage organizations reaching out with compassion to provide guidance, counseling, education, job training, shelter, and more. Ultimately, it is the crucial difference between ministering and administering.
City Union Mission, one of CaseWorthy’s faith-based Community Partners, is making a profound difference in the lives of the impoverished and chronic homeless youth in the Kansas City Metro area with a wonderful program that allows children to have fun, learn life lessons and just be kids!
Each summer more than 650 children from impoverished and homeless families throughout the Kansas City metro area enjoy bright sunny days filled with love, laughter and the opportunity to make new friends at our residential summer camp. They sleep in clean, safe beds and are provided three nutritious daily meals and wholesome snacks. In chapel, at campfires and during quiet times with caring Christian volunteers, they learn about Jesus Christ and how he can help them build bright futures. Boys and girls ages 7 through 16 attend Big Camp, where they take part in swimming, fishing, hiking, arts and crafts, and other exciting adventures. In our Tot Lot, youngsters 4 through 6 are provided with appropriate summer-camping clothing and swimsuits and enjoy story times, tea parties and pony rides. Weekly sessions are held throughout the summer months for young campers as well as families.
