Here is a glimpse of our program this Fall and Winter. The school year consisted of visits to Lane Farms, pumpkin carving, a music open house, beach clean up with Save the Mermaids, feeding the homeless with Vow4Mal, garden visits at Pilgrim Terrace, and joining in on the holiday parade with Kids Helping Kids. We were fortunate enough to also welcome The Lighthouse into our programming by opening a learning center with tutoring and music classes! This slideshow was made by one of our past interns and KHK tutor, Betsabe Lopez. Enjoy!
On December 16th, the children of The Village and The Lighthouse performed at the annual Children’s Showcase. We had the privilege of being able to perform for the second year in a row at the beautiful theatre of La Cumbre Junior High. Students practiced for almost two months prior to this event, which featured an array of talents from the students.
The Learning Center offers one-on-one tutoring M-F to youth K-12grade.
A weekly program where children have the opportunity to have private one-on-one music lessons.
Each Summer, The Village offers an on-site summer program to youth K-12 grade.
The Turner Foundation, formerly the Rose Garden Village Foundation, was founded in 1958 by Rev. Dr. Albert J. Turner. Thus beginning a legacy of service to those who are in need. At the time the needs of the elderly were primerose of the Foundation. For 45 years the Rose Garden Village was a staple of ‘service to seniors’ in Riverside, CA. At the same time, the United States government adopted Section 231 of the Federal Housing Administration (HUD), which provided for the underwriting of retirement homes for the elderly. Rev. Turner’s Rose Garden Senior Living haven was the first project in the nation under that act.
The Mission of the Turner Foundation is to provide safe, affordable housing, as well as programs and services that will improve the quality of life for The Village Residents and the surrounding community. The Vision, Beyond Charity, is the call to provide hope support, and high quality affordable housing to the underserved in the community.
