Founded in 2013, the Elder’s House is a local, nonprofit organization that provides a safe and nurturing home for youth, ages 12 to 18 years old, who have been affected by adverse childhood experiences and cannot remain in their own homes.
In conjunction with the launch of our first home in Spring 2019, the board of directors, staff, and volunteers for the Elder’s House are pleased to announce our inaugural “Strike Out the Barriers to High School Success” Bowl-A-Thon. This signature event will take place on October 5, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Signet Bowling Center, 884 Bells Mill Road, Chesapeake, VA.
The purpose of the event is to raise funds that will cover the costs of providing housing, transportation, food and enrichment services (i.e. counseling, tutoring, field trips, etc.) for up to 8 male middle and high school students during the first 100 days of school year 2019-2020. The first 100 days of school represent the most critical period for determining academic success during the year. Students who are absent, fall behind academically or become exposed to mental/emotional stress during the first 100 days of school have a greater risk of failing or dropping out.
Every $161 raised will provide one day of housing and services for 1 male middle or high school student residing at the Elder’s House this school year. Will you help us raise funds to strike out the barriers to high school success for youth and families served by the Elder's House?
