“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

CFAH Celebrates 125 Years Serving Children


What a way to celebrate our 125th year serving children from our region with a 2021 restart of our If Just For A Day Summer Program,

On July 22nd, 2021, 40 happy children form the Gesu School in North Philadelphia enjoyed a wonderful refreshing beach day in North Wildwood and a visit to the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. The day was topped off with a special Barbecue lunch provided by our dedicated volunteers on the grounds of the lighthouse. Each Child received a CFAH Tee Shirt along with a Beach Bucket and shovel. A great time was held by all.

A huge Thank you to our summer Volunteers along with the City of North Wildwood, North Wildwood Rec Center, Unk Dunk Ice Cream for the donated Treats, the Hereford inlet Lighthouse and the North Wildwood Beach Patrol.

For future volunteer opportunities with CFAH, please email john@freshairhome.org for more information.

We will continue to provide updates on our status as we move through 2020 and beyond.

Thank you again for all your support and understanding!

God Bless You!
