Eastern Shore swim team volunteering with special athletes to sit in Ravens Honor Row
Congratulations to the Sho'Men Youth Swim Team Volunteer Club who were recently the recipient of the Inaugural Maryland Youth Service Award! They have served as swim coaches for the Bridges Athletic Program since 2018 and have inspired each other and athletes with developmental disabilities to learn new things and take risks. THANK YOU for all the work you do!
CIRCLEBUILD staff from ESPS Sherrie Tilghman and Suzette Turner learn how to enhance their teamwork skills with the horses. Bridges at Worthmore will be providing EAP services for CIRCLEBUILD a program that supports Kent County youth and families of incarcerated parents. Funding for CIRCLEBUILD is provided by the Governor’s Office for Children in partnership with Family and Community Partnerships of Kent County, Eastern Shore Psychological Services, LLC, Compass Regional Hospice, Sassafras Environmental Education Center, Worthmore Equestrian Center. We believe families impacted by incarceration deserve respect. Children and youth with a parent in jail have strengths, needs, and abilities that should be nurtured and supported. For more information on receiving services please call ESPS at 443-282-0102.
