House That Angels Built Wins Big

A sweet rhyme about living in The House That Angels Built gets its 30-seconds of fame with awards from the American Advertising Federation and Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.

Attic Angel Community's 30-second TV spot borrows from the children’s rhyme The House That Jack Built. Written by Attic Angel Outreach Coordinator Kelly Cheramy and produced by John Murray of WISC TV3, the House That Angels Built commercial received a First Place Award from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association as best commercial produced by the state's "medium market" television stations. Earlier this spring, the same ad received a Silver ADDY Award, honoring excellence in advertising and inspiring the highest creative standards in the industry.

The ad celebrates the genuine care and companionship that marks Attic Angel Community. The ad may be found on Attic Angel’s website and on YouTube at this link (or copy and paste this address into your browser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez_T6TwI-Eo)

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
