Kurn Hattin Homes’ Staff Refresh Campus in Anticipation of the Children’s Return
April 16, 2020
Kurn Hattin staff have been busy refreshing the campus in anticipation of the children’s return when it is safe to do so. Residential Services staff created an organization plan for several buildings and the storage spaces to give them "new life" by being cleaned up, given a fresh coat of paint, and an inventory done of supplies. The camping and fishing equipment rooms are in great shape for the children’s summer activities. A room has been designated for all the holiday items and a new space has been created for the Monarchs Dance Ensemble to rehearse and store their items. The daunting task of inventorying and re-organizing the clothes locker is underway.
