Support the Child Life Program Gift Fund

Unfortunately there are children who must seek treatment at Kentucky Children's Hospital (KCH) that requires overnight, or extended stays in the hospital. For those patients, KCH offers the Child Life Program. This program is a specialized service providing play opportunities for patients and families of the hospital. Play helps each child continue his or her growth and development, and eases the stress families experience while the child is in the hospital.

The Child Life staff and volunteers offer a variety of activities including special programs in the Treehouse Playroom; individualized activities in the patient's own room; closed circuit television programs on channel 13; preparation for procedures; assisting families in using technology to find information; and encouraging reading. The Child Life Program has three playrooms, a multi-media center, and a Family Resource Center. Children have the opportunity to utilize the playrooms, borrow toys and games, and have computer access to make their time in the hospital a little more entertaining.

Gifts made to the Child Life Program at Kentucky Children's Hospital, provides patients and their families access to a variety of resources that enables the patient to "be a kid" while getting the specialized medical treatment they need.
