We have children with compromised immune systems that often stay with us, so it is very important for us to maintain a clean environment. Having groups who come and help us with our daily chores help keep our facilities nice and clean for the families we serve. Chores included are cleaning our kitchens, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, picking up trash as well as other basic house chores. We provide the cleaning supplies although donations are greatly appreciated!
