With temperatures hitting three-digits across the country, it’s no surprise that many families are packing up the kids and heading off to the nearest body of water. While we’re big fans of using water activities to help beat the heat, it’s important to remember that even a few inches of water can be hazardous to kids. Drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional death among kids ages 1-14, but by taking some basic precautions, you can help keep the kiddos safe!

Our featured choice for July's Employee of the Month is Dylan Morgan, our Transitional Housing Coordinator! After working for nearly seven years in the financial industry, Dylan was interested in a career with more meaning. Ultimately, it was his brother Clayton that sparked his interest in working with EA Family Services.

It's that time of year again! For many, the school year is drawing to a close, and kids across the country are eagerly watching the clock as it counts down to summer. As temperatures begin to rise, it can be tempting to plant oneself in an air-conditioned room and bask in the glow of the tv screen, but hot summer days don't need to keep the kiddos inside! Check out our list below of fun, family-friendly activities!
