Our Approach

Where Kids Can Just Be Kids

The Children’s Healing Center works to address key social determinants of health, including isolation and loneliness, by providing a safe, clean place where kids with weak immune systems and their families can gather, play, connect and shed the seclusion so often mandated by their diagnoses.

When a child or adolescent is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, lives often filled with social activities come to a halt. Instead, families have to shelter in place, watching the world move on around them. Everyone in the family is affected and, with no outlet, isolation and loneliness takes a toll on everyone’s physical and mental health.

But there is hope! The Children’s Healing Center supports 60% of overall Social Determinants of Health factors for members.
