PASSION GROWERS’ EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEER FOR LOCAL CHILDREN’S HOME

His House Children’s Home recognizes local supporters for their volunteerism

His House Children’s Home honors and recognizes many Passion Growers employees who have worked hard over the past year to help make the children feel at home. The employees’ children’s’ Girl Scout Troop and friends (many of which are Passion Growers employees) were awarded with His House Children’s Home’s “Outstanding Volunteer Group of the Year for 2012.”

Passion Growers’ employees Jacqueline Binner and Kathy Smith have volunteered much of their spare time to helping the children of “His House” and by working with the children of local Girl Scout Troop #10306 from Saint Mark Catholic School. “This is such an honor and one that we all could not have received if it weren’t for all the hard work and dedication from the many volunteers,” said Binner. “We have all been so blessed by these wonderful children and they have allowed us to be a part of their lives and we have grown as people from the experience. We have grown in love!”

His House Children’s Home is a private, non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to restoring the joy in the lives of children from newborn to 18 years of age, and those who have transitioned out of the foster care system. Established in 1989, the organization provides residential care for abused, neglected and drug-exposed children in a home-like setting.

The agency is licensed by the Florida Department of Children & Families, contracted by Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe, Inc. and in Broward County ChildNet, Inc. as a residential program and child-placement agency. As such, the organization is a frontline provider of residential services when an abused child comes into a foster care system. His House is committed to breaking the cycle of abuse, while meeting the emotional, medical, educational and social needs of the child. The organization provides programs and services ranging from residential care, foster and adoption placement, case-management, in-house counseling, the His House Academy, tutoring, in addition to weekly enrichment activities such as art, music, athletics, drama and music production. Since its inception, His House has restored the joy in the lives of over 4,500 children. For more information on His House Children’s Home or to learn how you can help, visit http://www.hhch.org/.
