New Therapy Playground for Children Staying at Sheriff's Department Crisis Center
Updated: Jan 29, 2022
In September the Sheriff's Department Juvenile Services Center had a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new therapy playground for the children staying in the Crisis Center at the facility. This project was 21 months in the making, and was the dream of Crisis Care Coordinator, Jamie Eaton. I was proud to help her get this project off the ground and see it through to completion. Curtis Stoddard from Lucky Dog recreation was the foreman on the project; he and his crew did an amazing job from start to finish. The playground equipment is designed to be able to be used by counselors and other adults working with the children in our care. They will be utilizing this area to help children process their emotions and work through their personal challenges. I had a blast testing out the zip line and other playground equipment. This was strictly to insure that it would support the weight of an adult. LOL at least that's the story I'm sticking to.
Take a look at the YouTube video link. It shows the “testing” of the equipment.
