Our Cooper Street Playground is now complete!
In our 17’x27′ space, we were able to fit a medium-sized swing set. It contains two swings, a 2.5 foot slide, and a sandbox made out of cedar wood. Blue rubber playground mulch will provide a safe play surface.
In the spring of 2024, we intend to add a few additional elements to the playground.
Thank you to 100 Women Who Care of Northeastern New York for making this possible with your donation. Cooper’s families are overjoyed!

Recently, we completed the update to our kids waiting room, which was possible from 100 Women Who Care of Northeast NY Chapter.
Prior to COVID Caleo Counseling’s waiting rooms were renovated for more space allowing for a kids’ waiting room. Right before COVID it was being decorated and setup with an Under the Sea theme.
Since regulations have been lifted from the pandemic we now have the opportunity to finish what was started.
The goal for the waiting room was just not to create an environment for clients, but for siblings that may be waiting for them to get done with their appointment as well. Now because of the donation we were able to complete the kids waiting room with needed furniture and activities. We ordered a storage cubby for organizing games, a secondary bookcase for the books (for which the clinicians have so children can take home a book), a dual activity table that is home to busy beads and building blocks (converts into a lego building station), ordered an under the sea rug with learning attributes for kids and lastly we ordered a kids table that allows kids to sit down and have space to play, build or draw.
We recently just finished the waiting room on July 25th. So far it has been a hit and had a good response from parents and kids alike.
