DUBUQUE--Variety helps children and families of of all kinds deal with some of life's most challenging times and circumstances.

The Teresa Center in Dubuque is an emergency shelter for women and children - which, with the help of Variety, helps children deal with the frightening uncertainty of what's next.

At other times, the center's playroom is full of laughter, coming from children who, at the moment, have very little to be happy about. Variety money helped create a play are for kids who are going through a lot.

" A lot of times when children come here, it's a traumatic event for them they are dealing with a lot of issues that might be going on whether it's domestic violence or drug use in the home.or even if it's being doubled up with a grandmohter or an aunt. It's important that they are able to play," said shelter director, Bridget Bartlett
