The Children’s Healing Center is a place I can be myself in every way, there isn’t a focus on what is wrong with me. It is a place that I can be a teenager and not be worried about what makes me different.

The Children’s Healing Center community saw the intensity of what we were dealing with and did everything it could to help. This group of incredible people allowed me to be there for my entire family which has been absolutely priceless.
CHILDREN'S HEALING CENTER MEMBER/parent
The CHC is an incredible concept unlike anything I have seen before in my time as a physician. We know that illness is more than simply disease pathology, and the CHC promotes healing of the mind and spirit of children in a truly unique way. There is no question in my mind that the CHC has a significant impact on the health and wellness of patients and their families.
