Cedarcrest Center

2020 Goals:

Cedarcrest Center provides extended residential and short-term specialized medical care, advanced respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapies and education for children, infants to age 21. 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 expand capacity across the healthcare sector to address common concerns related to workforce development.

Fundraising Events:

The 8th Annual Kids Care Walk and Roll, October 5th — A non-competitive walk or roll (with an assistive device) over a non-incline 2.1-mile course. Fun for people of all ages and abilities.

Annual Tree Lighting and Sing-a-long — December 4th, 4:30 p.m.

Giving Opportunities:

Contributions support the operations of the organization and fund the gap that exists between the cost to provide the specialized medical care and the funding we receive from Medicaid. 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 sooth them, or take a walk with them around our gardens. Our volunteers include families, scouts, schools groups, high school and college students, and adults of all ages.

Some volunteers work directly with the children we care for; others help with gardening or administrative projects. 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.
