Over 300 children and volunteers pass through the doors of the Chai Lifeline Art Spot, a haven of connection, friendship and support, each month. A wide array of workshops allows each child to engage in different activities, yet all leave with the same broad smiles.
Big Brothers/ Big sisters
Walking into the Art Spot on an average night, one can find 20 big sisters and little sisters or big brothers and little brothers bonding in an atmosphere of serenity and positivity. The multiple creative activity stations in the Chai Lifeline Art Spot are the result of months of thought, with options including baking, woodworking, hairstyling, a crafts corner and more. As some children exercise their creativity and learn useful skills, others can be found relaxing with a board game and ice cream.
Moms to Moms Support Groups
Mothers facing similar challenges get together for evenings of support and camaraderie, hosted by Chai Lifeline case managers. An array of delicious refreshments and a creative activity set the stage for participants to relax and let go, and inspirational speakers share words of chizuk that stay with participants for weeks to come.
Chai Boys & Girls Clubs
Dozens of Camp Simcha children attend Chai Boys and Chai Girls, clubs for children battling illness, where they form lifelong friendships with like-minded children and blossom under the guidance of loving, devoted counselors.
