A Day at the Beach

Recently, our girls had an opportunity to spend a couple days at the beach. For some, it was the first time that they had ever seen the ocean. They were excited and enjoyed a chance to spend a day playing and having fun.

Recreation plays an important part in the healing and recovery of our girls. People robbed them of their childhood. We can't give that back. But we can give them the chance to discover what play and carefree moments feel like.

At the Rapha House Freedom Foundation, we believe that our girls must do the hard work of emotional recovery and vocational training. But we also believe that they should have fun and a good time. After all, these girls deserve some happy memories to look back on.
