CFS held an open house to unveil our new therapeutic playroom on Thursday, April 25th, 2024.

The refurbished playroom is specially designed for use by children who have been subjected to abuse. Students in the Interior Design program at Palm Beach State College produced the playroom concept under the guidance of Professor Nancy Albert. The design features enhancements from the flooring and walls to furniture and lighting, including a one-way observation window. Funding for this project was provided from kind donors raising the paddle at the 24th Annual Old Bags Luncheon in the spring of 2023.

Commenting on the Open House and launch of the refurbished therapeutic playroom, Todd L’Herrou, Chief Executive Officer of the Center for Family Services said, “Our goal was to have a comfortable space for our youngest clients.” He noted that as Palm Beach County’s designated Sexual Abuse Treatment Program, the Center works a lot with children impacted by physical or sexual abuse. “Through the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to open this new space where the children can express those experiences, not just verbally but through play, as a step towards healing.”

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our donors and open house attendees.
