ABOUT

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

The goal of this 501(c)(3) organization is to help children and youth with Spina Bifida, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, juvenile rheumatioid arthritis, achondroplasia, amputations and missing limbs, polio, dislocated hips, club feet, spinal cord injuries, or other mobility issues and their friends grow up to be confident, resilient Independent, and contributing members of society who have ongoing relationships with their peers and God. To accomplish this we will have 2 hour twice monthly meetings consisting of four components:

Happy Kids Huddle

  

  1. a speaker or activity to expose participants to a wide variety of interests, conversational topics, skills, potential hobbies, play and leisure activities, vocations, community resources, and networking opportunities

  2. exploration of and provision of service to others

  3. pleasant carefree play and leisure

  4. a nondenominational study of the Bible to learn about the God who created the universe
     

In addition, the way we work with club members is highly important and is described here: Nature of the Club.

Each year, the Tricord Club will add curriculum and activities for the next phase of the child’s age and development. As the club progresses, we will continually adapt it as we explore the best practices and effectiveness of various strategies and we may collapse some of the age groups as needed.

 

After the initial year, the children have the option to continue, progressing to the next age bracket of the club through the age of 18, when they may become adult volunteers.  When children do not choose to move forward to the next age category, new participants will be recruited to fill their absence.

Our club meets in Metairie, Louisiana.

Child Safety

 

The Tricord Club has room for a total of 10 six to eight year olds. We are looking to have half with physical disabilities and half without. Core clubroom volunteers have been recruited and trained to assist the director with the children in the club meetings. The volunteers were screened by passing the required background checks, and trained in the Policies and procedures for the organization to ensure a clear cohesive vision for the club.

Saturday, June 19 our speaker will be Elsie Saunders, a classically trained free lance fine artist. She will discuss her art career. Her interactive presentation will allow club members to experiment with various art mediums like paints, pencil drawing, charcoal, and collage.

During the Bible study we will continue exploring Genesis as we discover Joseph, his coat of many colors, his dreams, and how he became the second in charge to the Pharaoh of Egypt.
