Cedarcrest Center

2019 Goals:

Cedarcrest Center provides extended residential and short-term specialized medical care, advanced respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapies and education for children, infants up to age 21, from New Hampshire and neighboring Vermont and Maine. We provide a nurturing, home-like setting, state-of-the-art medical supports including telemedicine appointments with DHMC and a wonderful adaptive playground. In the coming year, we anticipate continued demand for our advanced respiratory therapy expertise, particularly in the area of ventilator weaning. We will also continue to invest resources and energy to expand capacity across the healthcare sector to address common concerns related to workforce development.

Fundraising Events:

Several events are held throughout the year including the Autex Mazda Car Show in August, Walk & Roll and Monadnock Region Battle of the Badges Hockey Exhibition in October and Tree Lighting in December.

Giving Opportunities:

Contributions support the operations of the organization and fund the gap that exists between the cost to provide specialized medical care and the funding we receive from Medicaid and School Districts. Funding also supports special medical equipment and educational and therapeutic technology not funded through any traditional source. Interested individuals may contribute to Cedarcrest Center securely on our website www.cedarcrest4kids.org or via mail. Cedarcrest Center’s 501 (C) (3) number is 02-0441832 and we welcome contributions from donor advised funds or through appreciated securities.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers play important roles at Cedarcrest. The children benefit greatly from having someone read to them, rock and soothe them or take a walk with them around our gardens. We have volunteer opportunities for short-term or long-term commitments and regular/irregular scheduling. Groups often assist with activities such as preparing for our annual prom or special events. To learn more about how you or your group can make a difference, email us at info@cedarcrest4kids.org.
