Happy 2017 from The Sophie House!
We have had an amazing 2016 and are so looking forward to the New Year ahead.
As we move into 2017, we hope you will stay connected through Facebook , Instagram (@thesophiehouse) and our monthly newsletter.
We will have events throughout the year such as shopping nights, a golf tournament, our annual cookout at the community center, spaghetti dinners, pancake breakfast, Back to School Party, Easter Party, Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebrations, and our Silent Auction too! Multiple classes and programs for clients and the community will be starting up very soon and we encourage you to take advantage of the classes that sound appealing. Stay tuned for when and where to sign up and we will see you soon!

Service Spotlight & Special Thanks to Girl Scout Troop 3772
Thank you, girls, for your help with the Christmas Party. We couldn’t have done it without you!
The girl scouts of troop 3772 and their leaders made this year’s Client Christmas Party and Shopping experience a huge success! From the crafts with the kids and adults to helping the children shop and wrap, and decorating Christmas cookies, the day went so smoothly! The girls made food for the event, helped decorate the community center before the event, decorated toy collection boxes, and collected wrapping paper. We are already looking forward to next years event!
