“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.

As we wind down 2019 and begin 2020, 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 250 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. We are on the cusp of completing Phase II ( Exterior of home ) in early spring of 2020 and move into the final phase III after that. We have an anticipated completion date of Fall 2021.

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!
