Non-clinical programs are regularly available to support our families both emotionally and physically.
Current programs include:
- pet therapy
- art therapy
A daily schedule of programs is posted throughout the House. Inquiries can be directed to the Program Coordinator.
Families can find comfort in knowing that everyone in the House is going through the challenges of having an ill or injured child. Often, lasting bonds are made from time spent with other families at the House.
