“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
-Leo Buscaglia


Rebuilding Our Home. Restoring Our Mission.

The Children’s Fresh Air Home (CFAH) is a non-profit organization that provides a no-cost, enriching summer experience at the Jersey Shore in a safe, positive environment for children who may be living with family or community adversities.

The North Wildwood-based Home has offered a summer respite to more than 20,000 children from the Philadelphia and New Jersey regions for more than 115 years.

The Children’s Fresh Air Home is located at 1100 Surf Ave, North Wildwood, NJ 08260. Contact us at 609-522-2716 or via email at john@freshairhome.org.

Program Update: We’ll continue to host our “If Just for A Day” program while the Home is closed for renovations.
