FRC Receives Grant from Green Foundation for Sensory Room

Screen Shot 2013-12-19 at 9.59.33 PMThrough a grant of $10,000 from the Allen P. and Josephine B. Green Foundation, the abused and neglected children in Family Resource Center’s Therapeutic Day Treatment Preschool will soon have a “Sensory Room” to help them deal with the effects of their abuse.  Each piece of equipment in the Sensory Room will be designed to meet a sensory need for a hurting child: a reassuring “hug” from a compression vest, deep pressure from crawling into a “steamroller,” or a release of pent-up tension among the room’s colorful mats and balls.

For over sixty years, the Green Foundation, a private philanthropy, has been committed to “improving the quality of life in Missouri.”   Thank you, Green Foundation!
