Doris W. Jones Summer Enrichment Program

The Niagara Falls Housing Authority’s Doris W. Jones Summer Enrichment program is a comprehensive summer program that provides individualized educational, social, cultural and recreational components geared to each individual child’s level of learning. Activities include: storytelling, music, computer instruction, etiquette classes, arts and crafts, African-American dance and nature hikes/walks. Educational field trips are taken each Friday, enabling children from low-income families to have exposure to the arts, museums, nature, and a host of cultural enrichment activities, such as the Underground Railroad. The program operates July – August. An average of 200 children are enrolled in the Summer Enrichment program each year.
