Caring Connections: Washington County’s Single Point of Entry, Caring Connections allows families with children birth to five to make one phone call and be referred to programs and services that they are eligible to enroll. It is our goal that every Washington County child will enter school ready to learn. This project is a collaborative effort of Washington County Health Department, Washington County Public Schools, Head Start of Washington County, Washington County Family Center and The Judy Center of Washington County. APPLES for Children serves as the coordinating agency for the project.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace: Founded in Kimberly, Idaho in 2012, Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing hand-made bunk beds to children who don’t have beds of their own. Not only do they deliver these beds to children in need, but they partner with organizations, churches, businesses and individuals to build them at events called Build Days! Learn more and request a bed on their website.
