Last month, our wonderful partners at Blue Cross Blue Shield MA facilitated a game-changing family visiting room renovation at the Plymouth Department of Children and Families (DCF). These rooms are the place where children and families can comfortably connect in a safe and cozy environment. Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA partnership in working with us to update and renovate these rooms is pivotal in allowing our dedicated Wonderfund team and volunteers to carry out the unique mission of working with children who have been impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect and to help meet their individual needs but more importantly, ensure they find joy, hope and comfort in their lives
Since the renovation last month, our kids and families have been raving about the new rooms that offer a safe and relaxing space to meet, connect, and play!
Here’s what people had to say:
“I just wanted to personally say what a wonderful job the Wonderfund did to get the visiting rooms in Plymouth together. I am here in the office today and the AAM took me on a tour and couldn’t wait to show me how wonderful the rooms looked as well as the lobby. It is absolutely beautiful but most importantly creates a more natural family setting for visits. The décor, furniture, games and the work that was put in is truly appreciated. The AAM also wanted to ensure the Wonderfund knew how much the office appreciated the work that was done. They have received great feedback from the families and community. Well done and thank you for a great collaboration with us here in the South.”
