Someplace Safe Parenting Time Center Playground Fundraiser:

The Parenting Time Centers (PTC) of Someplace Safe are designed to assure that children can have safe and conflict-free access to parents through a variety of services delivered by trained providers. Each center provides a safe, neutral location for the drop off, pick up and visitation of children. The PTC and its staff also encourage respectful communication within families, help to establish a parenting time routine, provide parenting tips, and offer parents referrals to other community resources.

During supervised visits, Parenting Time Centers allow families to enjoy a variety of activities . The Parenting Time Center located in Fergus Falls, Minnesota has an outdoor playground which has been enjoyed for many years by area families. However, due to its age and deterioration, it is in dire need of replacement. A new playground, complete with a refinished play area will allow families to bond outside and enjoy fresh air in a fun and safe space.

Here is where we need YOUR HELP!

YOUR support of this special project will help us reach our $5,000 goal, the amount needed to replace the current playground with a safe, child-friendly structure. Helping is easy:

* Contribute your monetary gift quickly and easily online at: https://p2p.idonate.com/p/0d65d410-0ac5-40e2-8510-....

* Help us gain support by sharing this page with others on social media or via email.

* Become a "Fundraiser" yourself, and grow support and funds for this project within your own network of contacts by signing up and following the easy steps.

For more information about the Playground Fundraiser please contact Emilyn at: emilyn.h@someplacesafe.info.
