We’re counting down the days to May 4th – 5th and The Great Give® 2021.

This year, we are taking advantage of this 36-hour online fundraising appeal to fund Let’s Get Social Chapel Haven, a series of events to bring together the Chapel Haven community! These events will add to our recreation calendar and will be free, easy to access and just plain fun! Our goal is to provide opportunities for our residents and community members to join various social activities with staffing over the next year to help rebuild the social skills and connections that have been so missed!

You can check out our Great Give 2021 profile and make a donation here: Chapel Haven Schleifer Center, Let’s Get Social!
