About Plein Air Brandywine Valley
The planning of Plein Air Brandywine Valley has been a huge undertaking and the event would not be possible without the collaborative efforts of those involved.
The mission of CBH is to help children with special needs to reach their highest potential as functioning members of their families and communities. CBH focuses upon the strengths of the 7- to 18-year-old youth with special needs and their families. This asset-based program, in sharp contrast to more common deficit-based approaches, produces measurable outcomes to ensure the completion of our mission. Each child is assigned a caseworker who partners with families, schools, health professionals, and community organizations to maximize resources. In addition, participants may attend summer and weekend camps, where they build relationships with competent, caring adults as well as with their peers. Camp activities promote resiliency and foster the skills to resist risk factors.
Through the Delaware Center for Youth Development, CBH also offers professional development and technical assistance to other youth-serving organizations and schools, thereby supporting the communities in which our families strive to reach their highest potential.
