The primary beneficiary of the Lake Wobegon® Bike Ride is Day Services at Catholic Charities St. Cloud Children’s Home, a rehabilitative mental health service for students experiencing developmental challenges. These developmental challenges may be in social interaction skills, emotion regulation, mood management, and/or behavioral disruptions due to a diagnosed mental health condition. (Depression, Anxiety, Asperger Spectrum Disorders, Trauma, etc.) Due to these challenges, most of our students experience difficulties at home, at school and in the community.
All programs utilize a strong collaborative approach providing both academic and therapeutic services within the typical school day. The Young Learners Program in St. Cloud and the St. Cloud Child and Adolescent Program offer this multi-disciplinary approach serving children from ages 3-18.
