Cumberland Plateau Regional Housing Authority will host its 2019 Family Day on June 14 at Breaks Interstate Park for families at Centennial Heights in Haysi and Fox Meadow in Lebanon.
The event is part of HUD’s Strong Families Initiative, which focuses on the importance of parental involvement in children’s lives. As in previous years, several local agencies will send representatives to provide information about work force development services, nutrition, mental health and substance abuse counseling and more.
Summer youth program planned at Fox Meadow
Youth at Fox Meadow Apartments in Lebanon are in store for a fun-filled summer.
Free weekday lunches and lots of activities are planned.
CPRHA is again partnering with Feeding America Southwest Virginia to offer free lunches and snacks Monday through Friday in the community room. The federally-funded, state-administered Summer Food Service Program serves free healthy meals to children up to age 18 in low-income areas during summer months. Volunteers from the Fox Meadow Association of Concerned Citizens will help with the program.
Housing authority staff are also planning two summer activity programs for children up to age 18.
Lebanon Community Fellowship Church will provide youth activities three days a week for children age 7 and younger with help from ACT volunteers. ACT volunteers will plan activities on the remaining days.
For older children age 8-18, housing authority staff are organizing GenZ – Youth in Motion, a nine-week program that is tentatively scheduled to begin June 10. The goal is to offer a quality, fun, educational program to keep Fox Meadow youth engaged in positive activities during summer break.
