OUR SECOND HOME ANNOUNCES CHILDREN’S ART SHOW AND RECEPTION TO BENEFIT FAMILY PROGRAMS

Daly City October 11, 2007 — Our Second Home, a vibrant community center in Daly City focusing on low-income children and families, will hold its first art show and reception, “Celebrating Children’s Art,” on November 29, 2007, from 5 to 7 pm at City Hall in Daly City.

While enjoying paintings, collages, and sculptures on display created by young artists from local schools, guests can sample hearty cuisine from restaurants including 7 Mile House, The House of Catfish and Ribs, and Inang’s. Nonalcoholic beverages are included, and wine will be available for purchase. Participants can also bid on stylishly framed art in a silent auction, buy beautiful holiday and other notecards, and take a chance on winning one of several gift baskets in a raffle. All proceeds from the show will benefit Our Second Home’s programs and services, which are offered free to low-income Daly City families and include a preschool, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, parenting education, individual and group counseling for parents, and health services.

“We’re so excited to be hosting this art show for our first-ever fundraiser,” says Casey Federico, Program Supervisor at Our Second Home. “It gives us the opportunity to display the talents of our youngest artists while raising funds to sustain and expand our programs.”

Tickets are $15 (suggested donation), available in advance or at the door. Sponsorships are also available starting at $250; all sponsorships and major donations will receive program acknowledgement.

ABOUT OUR SECOND HOME
From its welcoming space at 725 Price Street in Daly City, Our Second Home brings together Daly City community members and service providers through a variety or family programs and services, including a preschool, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, parenting education, individual and group counseling for parents, and health services. It is operationally funded by First 5 San Mateo, the Children’s Collaborative Action Team, the Health Department, the City of Daly City, and private donations to serve children, families, and educators of children under age five.

In 2006–07, Our Second Home helped create real, lasting, and positive change for more than 600 families, in both quality and quantity of their time spent together. The benefits include including marked advances in children’s health, behavior and learning skills.

“They give us many ideas,” says one parent. “They motivate you as a parent, and the parent is who has to motivate the child.”

Staff members “treat people with kindness,” adds another parent, “so that one feels, as they say, at home. Sometimes, not even at home are you treated that well.”
