Sunrise Residential Treatment Center is constantly amazed at how talented, dedicated, hardworking, and generous their girls are. Sunrise students' study of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) not only helps them learn skills to regulate their emotions, but also helps them learn skills to build a life worth living.
One of the ways Sunrise assists its girls in building a life worth living is by creating as many opportunities as possible to help students give back to the community through various volunteer activities. From playing with the animals at local animal shelters, passing out water at the many races and triathalons that come through town, to painting fingernails and toenails at the rest home near by, the girls are out and about contributing to the local community. This generosity enables our girls to recognize the positive impact they can have.
"We are so proud of our girls," says Maria Simpson, Sunrise Adventure Director. "In this first quarter alone, our girls logged over 1,000 hours of service volunteer hours. It is truly amazing to watch them work so hard on their individual therapeutic journey and to see them want to give back to those around them. We truly appreciate their effort and willingness to go the extra mile for others."
