We provide a crucial missing component of the holistic healthcare puzzle by providing a place where kids with weak immune systems can fulfill their social, emotional and physical needs.
The Center is open to any kid from birth to age 26 who is immune-compromised and his or her family. Before kids are able to attend the Center, a medical or social work professional must refer them. Upon each visit, kids go through a health screening. Our goal is to create a safe space for kids and their siblings to express themselves, to interact socially and to feel a sense of belonging. We have a diverse population of kids with medically complex conditions, including:
• Autoimmune Conditions
• Blood Disorders
• Congenital Heart Defects
• Kidney Disease
• Neuromuscular disorders
When a child has a serious illness or medical condition, siblings can feel like they are not a priority. We’ve created a space where everyone in the family can feel special. At the end of the day, we just want to be a space where kids can come, play and be happy.
