ACAF Grant Brings Play Therapy Room to an Orphanage

Feb 28, 2017
Youngsters at the St. Aloysius Orphanage in Cincinnati, Ohio, now have access to a play therapy room, thanks to funds from the American Counseling Association Foundation's (ACAF) Growing Happy and Confident Kids (GHCK) program grant.
“It was an honor to receive this grant and a joy taking on this project,” said Sarah Senoyuit, a Clinical Counseling Intern with Hamilton County Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization. “The funding allowed us to purchase play essentials and create an inviting and therapeutic environment for our children. I can assure you our new Play Therapy room will be well used and well loved.”
 
Funds from the GHCK grant also helped a school counseling center rebuild after a devastating flood in West Virginia.

You can help to keep programs like this alive with a donation to the American Counseling Association Foundation. Your tax-deductible financial support will empower the counseling profession by funding career-building essay competitions for students, grants for counselors in need, national awards, scholarships, and more.

Donate here. Even a small amount can go along way in helping to support invaluable counseling programs and services.
