VICTORY JUNCTION FAMILY WEEKEND
Stigmas and public misperceptions can create isolation for those with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI), I/DD, and substance use disorders. Public sites and activities that encourage participation by people of all abilities help foster familiarity and awareness that there are more similarities than differences.
Trillium is partnering with Victory Junction, an inclusive camp located on 84 acres in Randleman, North Carolina, to offer separate family weekends for children with I/DD or in therapeutic foster care. Victory Junction enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun, and empowering, at no cost to children or their families.
Kick-off of the First Family Weekend of 2019!
Weekends for families of children with I/DD will cater to experiential opportunities—allowing them to experience activities they may not have the chance to in traditional camp settings.
Therapeutic foster care families will enjoy unique bonding opportunities through a trauma-informed approach sensitive to their needs and recovery.
