The Restoration Continues…

As we wind down 2018 and begin 2019, we have so many things we are thankful for.

THANK YOU….to all of our donors over the years that have supported our mission and our capital campaign efforts to rebuild our Home.
Because of you approximately 200 kids receive the gift of summer every summer with a stay or day trip at the Jersey Shore in North Wildwood NJ. They enjoy all that the shore has to offer to their young minds who live challenging lives every day in their communities in and around our region.

You have helped us raise close to $300,000. But we are not finished. Our goal is to complete Phase II ( Exterior of home ) in early spring of 2019 and move into the final phase III after that. We have an anticipated completion date of Summer 2020.

Won’t you continue to help us by donating today thru our website or at one of our many Fundraising events that occur throughout the year?

Check out our annual newsletter for detail and updates on all of our happenings and efforts to restore the home.

Thank you again for supporting The Children’s Fresh Air Home.

We’re calling on our friends, neighbors and local businesses to help make this decade-long dream a reality for the 20,000 children from the Philadelphia and New Jersey regions who have found a summer respite in CFAH for more than 120 years.

Please donate today!

What CFAH Needs – NOW:

  • Some funding exists to begin this phase, but $600,000 more in overall funding is needed to see the project through Phase III (restoration of interior and the Home’s first heating system).
  • Individuals can make a donation today!
  • Contractors and small businesses can make in-kind donations (materials, labor etc.) now by contacting CFAH for more information.

Our success to date would not be possible without the generous support of countless donors and sponsors. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor or learning more about the Capital Campaign, please contact John Stefankiewicz at or review our sponsorship levels.
