February Campus Update

  Well, we finally got some snow, and since the residents haven’t been able to go in to town much, it was fun for them to get outside and just play.  Housedad, Don Jones, and 2 of the residents in that Home decided to build a snowman (who is clearly an advocate for Shults-Lewis judging […]

January Campus Update

HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2021 IS FINALLY HERE!! The staff and kids had a good time over the holidays.  Santa and Mrs. Claus (Houseparents Joy & Charles Smith) showed up for the kids’ Christmas party and passed out presents.  Our “Elf” (pantry worker James Terhune) was close at hand to help Santa with the presents.  The […]

October Campus Update

We like to try to update you all, as much as possible, on what’s going on with the kids. But since Beth passed away and COVID hit, we have received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from all of our donors and those of you who simply continue to pray for us. We have […]

September Campus Update

AAAAAND THEY’RE OFF!! The fall semester is in full swing and the kids are doing VERY well. Home seven’s housemom, Kim Lucas, is one of those crafty, fun people who sees something on Pinterest and can recreate it. Kim had fun with the kids on the first day of school taking pictures to help the […]

August Campus Update

“Let them eat cake!”  Well, in this instance, it was pie.  Mmm, mmm, good!  Our residents have been working all summer in their cooking class making all sorts of good food.  Our school staff has been teaching the kids the “ins and outs” of how to cook.  Every so often, the rest of the staff […]

July Campus Update

COVID-19 – A word we are all tired of hearing.  It has invaded our lives and intruded on everything we do.  As the world tries to find its “new normal”, the staff at Shults-Lewis would like to send out a HUGE thank you.  We thank all of the people who have been on the frontlines […]

March Campus Update

February.  Of course we are going to talk about Valentine’s Day!  Did you get the opportunity to do anything amazing for the Hallmark holiday? Glenn & Angela Robertson hosted a Valentine’s dinner for the staff and kids.  We had an awesome Italian dinner and played Valentine’s Scategories.   I must admit there were some very creative […]

February Campus Update

Have you seen the meme? The one that says something like “Today is the 3,652nd day of January”? I completely feel that. The rest of the year FLIES so quickly, that when January arrives, with its calm, less chaotic schedule, it feels to drag on forever. That being said, January was still full of changes […]

January Campus Update

THREE KIDS! Three of our kids left our program successfully in December. They’ve already ‘friended” and “added” me on social medias. One of the girls who left had actually worked part-time in development over the last few months. I sent her a message that I already miss her! I’m so excited for her and the […]

December Campus Update

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with football…oh, and family & friends. Seriously, I do hope that you were able to spend some time with people who you love and cherish. Holidays can be a difficult time for our kids, as most of them do not have great memories of family gatherings. I […]
