Children’s Beach House has been serving children, families, and communities across Delaware for over 85 years. Two years ago, we made a more focused commitment to the community and schools of Milton. In collaboration with the school district, and alongside other community partners like Milton Theater and the Milton Arts Guild, Children’s Beach House has been investing our time, staff, and resources in developing high-quality after-school programming for 110 children at Milton Elementary School.

The research is clear: After-school programs provide educational and cultural experiences in a safe and supportive environment where children build positive relationships with their peers and adults who care about them. Children who participate show better-than-average outcomes around school attendance and engagement, social and behavioral issues, and academic performance. This is the work Children’s Beach House excels at. But we can’t do it alone. Healthy children are the fruit of healthy communities, not just of dedicated organizations.

Your contribution of $80 will provide one week of programming for a child growing up in your community.

A gift of $320 will give that kid a positive place to grow for a month.

If you are ready to go “above and beyond” for the children of Milton, your gift of $2,900 will provide an entire school year of programming for a child.

No gift, and no person, is too small to make a difference.

We are grateful for your support as we commit to another year of partnership in Milton.
