Opportunity House Summer Program
Opportunity House provides a summer program for children Kindergarten through the 5th grade. If your children need a safe place to go during the summer, then we can help! This free program includes learning activities, reading time, videos, crafts and board games. We also provide a light snack for the children who attend. The program is staffed by volunteers. The summer program includes one day each week of art instruction by local artists that volunteer their time to share their talents with the children.
