OUR MISSION AT CAVEHOUSE SUPPLY
Cavehouse Supply allocates a portion from every purchase towards the growth of our mission - Optimist Adventure Club.
Optimist Adventure Club partners with communities to provide day camps and week long workshops as a comprehensive approach to childhood mental health by offering fun and engaging activities, valuable resources, and personalized support from mental health professionals in both individual and group settings.
We are committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of children. The funds raised through this initiative will support programs and services aimed at improving the mental health of children and providing them with the support they need to thrive.
To create a safe and supportive environment where kids can develop and strengthen their mental health. We aim to empower kids through nuturing creativity, promoting emotional regulation, and developing social connections to help kids thrive in all aspects of their lives.
As a child, I was too busy digging deep into the mud with my dinosaurs or climbing to the top of our oak tree in the backyard getting ready to fly a rocket ship to an unknown planet, to worry about what might be going on around me. I knew things were "off" but my kid brain was unable to pinpoint a root cause.
It was around the age of 14 that I was able to recognize changes in my mom. Changes that took her to very dark places.
As I unpack my personal trauma as an adult and continuously add necessary tools to my toolbox to help me navigate the day-to-day, I find that I'm checking in on my child self. I can see how much the past affected me at such an early age and how it has tried to play such a large role in my daily life. I am constantly reminded of how crucial it is to educate myself by utilizing necessary resources from mental health professionals and organizations that are doing the work.
Building a strong and supportive community around you is key.
My mission with Cavehouse Supply is to help bring awareness to childhood mental health by supplying the products, tools, and resources to empower kids so they can navigate early childhood with confidence, nurture their creativity, and develop skills to support their mental health.
Every design, even our company name, has been directly inspired by kids and their limitless imaginations.
Being human is hard, but it's a little less difficult when we join together to create powerful and positive change for kids to navigate throughout their day.
