At Hillside, we’re committed to building Stronger Futures Together. We know the combined efforts of passionate, talented people can make a whole that’s much more powerful than the sum of their parts.
And “Together” includes you. As a member of the communities we serve, you’re an important partner in our work. Through your support of our mission, extraordinary things can happen.
Take Camp Possibilities, for example. This 240-acre property in Henrietta, NY, is the setting for an annual day camp program for youth in our care. The Camp features hiking trails and a pond, rolling fields and bountiful open space, and a huge barn that’s perfect for crafts. Each summer, carefully structured activities encourage positive behaviors, spark enthusiasm and teach teamwork.
One of our recreation directors recently told me about “Victor,” a youth who had been struggling to form relationships during his first weeks in residential treatment. After visiting Camp last summer, all that changed: through fishing, kayaking and hiking around the pond, Victor blossomed—improving his connections with staff and other youth, and allowing important therapeutic progress to be made.
The property was entrusted to Hillside years ago, and today philanthropy supports 100 percent of its upkeep and all Camp activities. Your generosity makes Camp happen—and that’s only one example of the above-and-beyond Hillside programs and services that require community support to become a reality.
Please consider a donation to Hillside today. With your help, the Possibilities are endless.
