November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month and the Children and Family Resource Center is collecting coats for the mothers and children involved in the Adolescent Parenting Program and Parents as Teachers Program. We are looking for mittens, scarves, and hats for infants, children, and teens – new or gently used.
The Center will be collecting items until the end of the month and any leftover coats will be donated to homeless teens in Henderson County. For more information contact Rachel Stein at 698-0674.
In addition to collecting coats and winter items for our Children and Family Resource Center babies, children, and teens, we’ll serve as a collection site for Only Hope WNC for the following items:

Harvest Dinner with the Stars is the Children & Family Resource Center’s signature event. Held every autumn at Kenmure Country Club, this event raises a significant percentage of our annual operating needs. The stars are local youth; their performances make this event truly unique and enjoyable.
For thousands of children and families every year, the Children & Family Resource Center offers hope and their first step ahead. YOU can play a personal and important role in ensuring that we are here, able to come alongside them in taking that first step. Sponsoring events, buying tickets, purchasing auction items, making a donation…all comes together and allows us to bring hope to families. It is our goal that every encounter a person has with the Children & Family Resource Center leaves them with hope.
For more information about the Harvest Dinner, please contact: Sarah Leatham, Director of Development & Community Engagement

Come tour the Early Learning Center Saturday, October 19th from 10-12 and check out books, videos, and learning kits for use in your classroom or at home. Children can listen to storyteller Ronnie Pepper at 10:30, or read a book with one of three therapy dogs. Become a member of the Early Learning Center that day, and you will receive $5 off the annual $20 membership fee. The Early Learning Center is a resource library for parents, teachers and early childhood educators that provide developmentally appropriate educational materials for teaching and engaging young children.
The programs offered at the Children & Family Resource Center are building stronger foundations for the children in our community by providing resources to help parents and child care centers create positive learning environments, screening children so they can start school with all the necessary tools, teaching parenting skills to families, and offering scholarships to educators and single mothers in need.
Children are invited to come out to the Early Learning Center at the Children & Family Resource Center on the first Thursday of the month beginning on September 5th from 3:00 to 4:30 to practice their reading skills while sharing their favorite stories with a lovable therapy dog. When children read to a therapy dog, their environment is transformed and the dread that is often associated with reading turns into eager anticipation allowing learning to take place.
In many programs over the country, specially trained dogs are helping children become confident readers. Participating kids are making enormous strides in reading and communication skills, while also building self-esteem, confidence, and social skills.
Early readers are encouraged to come to the Early Learning Center to share a book with an adorable reading companion. Call Noreen at (698)-0674 ext. 110, to make a reservation as space is limited.
