For over 4 years the Cookie Moms have been making a big difference in the lives of the children of Canyon Acres. Their consistent presence adds stability and a real touch of home for the 30 abused, neglected and emotionally troubled children who live at the Ranch residential treatment center. By providing twice a month “home-made” projects and activities, Cookie Moms are able to reinforce the behavioral therapeutic lessons being taught by the staff. Whether teaching the children how to make cookies or helping them with their homework, their projects and activities teach the children self confidence and even how to have fun. Additionally, the children learn how to follow directions and have a real sense of accomplishment at the successful completion of a project or activity. The Cookie Moms of Canyon Acres have definitely cooked up a “recipe for success” for the children.
