Young children who are starting life with trauma
caused by poverty, abuse, neglect, domestic violence… are at a huge disadvantage
. They need help in order to catch up with other kids, to realize their full potential and to avoid being victims of sexual exploitation when they are in their teens. There are many nonprofits dedicated to help these children. Sierra Vista Child & Family Services is one such organization and is one of the largest nonprofit agency in Stanislaus County. The leadership of Sierra Vista recognize the benefits of ChalkWild writable & erasable backpacks for their students. With the financial support of various community members, young children at Sierra Vista now get to draw on their backpacks to express themselves.
What Sierra Vista Child & Family Services posted on their LinkedIn
page: “ChalkWild Backpacks allow children to express their feelings when their words aren’t enough. Our staff will be able to use the backpacks as a tool to communicate with children as a form of art therapy. They can use them even when participating in distance learning, adding some normalcy to their school experience.”
