Raising a child and making sure he has everything he needs can be an uphill battle for some people. But in situations where parents need additional resources, an appropriate level of care is difficult to achieve. We are proud to work with nonprofit organizations that work with children. Kallen Media is therefore proud to announce that we are working with the Latham Centers. The Latham Center is a Cape Cod-based organization that has served the special needs community for over 50 years. Our collaboration began in a pro bono advisory role; Kallen Media’s consultation with Latham then extended to optimize their Google AdWords communications.
Google Ad Grants provides nonprofit organizations free google ads money. Kallen Media first contacted members of the Latham Centers administrative team through Catchafire.org – a volunteer matchmaking platform « on a mission to mobilize the world’s talents for good. »

Asinotherapy program (donkey therapy)
Donkey Therapy is a unique program to the Latham Centers, which has six beloved miniature donkeys on site. This therapeutic model originated in Germany. The individual builds trust with the donkey – the participant focuses on caring for the animals, is kind, reliable and lets the donkeys know that they are there to help them. Not only are these life skills important to program participants, but donkeys also bring great joy to the people who live in Latham.
Latham developed this program with the help of fundraising efforts, including the infamous 2019 « Donkey wedding » on Cape Cod. The miniature donkeys Esther and Esau « got hitched » to the Taylor-Bray farm in Yarmouth harbor.
