Service to Children AwardsTherapy and Fun has been awarded the Service to Children Award by the Child and Family Resource Council in the Community Group Professional category in a ceremony held at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. Since, 1982, Therapy and Fun has welcomed over 700 children with disabilities providing intensive, hands-on, creative and fun therapy to help them walk, talk, learn and play. This program aptly combines therapy for children, volunteerism for teens, and respite to parents in a culture dedicated to supporting children with disabilities and preventing child abuse and neglect.
