On Tuesday, July 11th, Chicktime supporters,  Macy and her mom Susan Tucker Hall,  came to  The Jenkins Institute for some live therapy for our beautiful girls.

What a relaxing time spent with the therapy dogs. Healing is a process and how amazing it is that dogs can be part of that process.

Hope to see everyone at Chicktime July!

Tonight was such a Joy!!! Lisa Came to do a makeup tutorial and showed us lots of tricks. The girls were so attentive!! They all got makeup bags, a palate of eye and lip and contour colors and a hand mirror. Love them all so much!!!

We had our girls come and participate. We love to encourage kids to love others and show them how much they have in common!

One of the young ladies in these pictures just came to the Jenkins Institute this week. She felt so overwhelmed and one of the House Moms said she was keeping to herself. She completely came out of her shell at our event.She laughed and giggled the whole
Night!!!! She did a bunch of the volunteers makeup. This is why we love what we do during Chicktime…the smiles and laughter!

February Update:

January and February were a whirlwind couple of months for Chicktime Charleston! Our chapter leader, Megan Swatt started and and completed her training to lead our chapter. She toured the Jenkins Institute during her training and instantly fell in love with the staff that she met that day! Our community has already shown us so much love and support by helping us to fill up the majority of our 2017 schedule with workshop leaders and activities. We have a very exciting year ahead of us! We are so excited about the future of Chicktime Charleston and we hope that YOU will be part of our journey. In addition to volunteers and workshop leaders, we are praying for co-leaders to help Megan run our chapter. If you feel called to serve the hurting children of our community, please contact Megan today!
