It has been an amazing year for Solstice! We have seen so much growth, healing and improvements, both in our program and in our residents. Here are just a few of the amazing things that have happened at Solstice this year!
We waited patiently for many months as our new school and administration building was built. It was fully worth the wait! We are loving the custom-built classrooms, our state of the art computer lab and spacious therapy offices, as well as the abundance of new green-space throughout our campus.
We are elated about the 17 graduates we had from our program this year! Each of these girls and assigned female at birth worked hard in both therapy and school to become successful, confident young women.
Ribbon Cutting Party
Along with our new school, Solstice threw a summer party for an official ribbon cutting! Between the dunk tank, horse rides for the staffs’ children, a lip-syncing battle and food provided by the Waffle Wagon, residents, staff and their families all had a great time celebrating our new building.
San Juan trip
In May, Solstice partnered with Breakwater Expeditions to offer our first parent-child adventure therapy trip. Four Solstice families joined with a few Solstice staff to kayak the San Juan Islands. They traveled approximately 33 miles by kayak and then spent a day in Seattle to enjoy time together and practice their newly learned skills.
Employees of the year
At the end of each year we recognize an employee of the year. This year we couldn’t choose just one and our employees of the year were Recreation Director, Stacey Rosenberg, and Summer Team Director, Lacey King. We are proud to have Stacey and Lacey as part of the Solstice team!
