Supporting the Entire Family
Providing the best care for kids means more than diagnosing and treating illnesses and injury.
It means offering comfort, education and support to make life better for the whole family – and help kids just be kids.
Expand and Enhance Family-centered Support Programs
Through donor funding, we will enhance and sustain our family-centered support programs. These teams anticipate a family’s needs and help meet the challenges that come with navigating a child’s health condition.
Child Life Specialists use therapeutic interventions to support kids during medical procedures, illnesses, and hospitalization.
Dedicated social workers help families cope with the wide variety of challenges that arise during a child’s hospitalization, easing their burdens so they can focus on their child’s health.
Through the school program, kids and teens don’t have to miss out on important education while receiving treatment.
Using a combination of counseling and creative arts, these teams address emotional and mental health needs for both kids and family members during hospitalization.
These programs provide compassionate, individualized support for families who have lost a child.
Camp Riley is an annual summer camp program lets children with physical and cognitive diagnoses experience life without limits, and adventures that help them build confidence and friendships.
