Franciscan Cre-Act School
After 30 years of educating youth in Pocatello, the Franciscan Cre-Act School closed in May 2010. The Franciscan Sisters' Family Life Center will open phase one of a new Intergenerational Center in September 2010.
The Family Life Center has been serving families for the past 35 years through its various programs located throughout the city of Pocatello. With the close of the Franciscan Cre-Act School the path has been opened to develop and integrate education and counseling through an intergenerational approach to serving local families. The programs will provide environments which foster intergenerational relationships within the family, encouraging youth to love and care for their elders through their natural spontaneity, physical vitality and ever expanding knowledge. In mutual exchange, the programs will support the elders as they role model for the children the stability of lasting spiritual values, emotional assurance, respect, hope and creative wisdom.
The center will include a pre-school program for 3-4 year old children, a READ mentoring and tutoring program, an after school adventure program and the current counseling services - marriage, family, individual, play therapy and groups. The center is located at 1745 Pocatello Creek Road, Pocatello. For more information, call 208-233-9383.
