The YourHomeForSale Team has a special Spotlight this week. This home is not for sale, but it is an integral part of our community. This week our Spotlight is The Children's Room.
The Children's Room is a wonderful organization, right in Arlington, dedicated to helping grieving children, teens and families in our community. The Children's Room educates teachers, counselors, youth workers and other professionals about how children and teens grieve - and enables them to facilitate the growth and healing process.
What volunteers and staff offer these children and families is priceless - and yet their service is free. They do not burden grieving families with cost, even though actual costs are about $1500 a year for a child or teen to participate in the program. Over two-thirds of their income comes from individuals like you.
So much about the holidays is focused on children and families. For those that have lost a loved one, this is a particularly difficult time of the year. If you are looking for a meaningful way to give back this holiday season, you need look no further than your own backyard.
You can support this local service through any number of ways:

"The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
