Cedarcrest Center


2022 Goals:

Cedarcrest Center provides extended residential and short-term specialized medical care, advanced respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapies, and education for children. 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 will be advancing initiatives set out in our strategic plan including growth in areas of programmatic support, operational development, sustainability and external relations.

Fundraising Events:

Cedarcrest’s primary special event is held in October each year. The Walk & Roll is a non-competitive event that has been held virtually the past two years and involved hundreds of supporters from around the country.

Giving Opportunities:

Contributed support helps purchase specialized medical equipment and educational and therapeutic technology not funded through any traditional source. Donations may be made by mail or securely on our website https://cedarcrest4kids.org. Cedarcrest Center’s 501(c)(3) number is 02-0441832, and we welcome contributions from donor-advised funds or appreciated securities.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers play important roles at Cedarcrest. The children benefit greatly from interactions with members of our community. In the past, volunteers have played music to small groups of children, read to children one on one, and helped with special events or activities. Current volunteer opportunities are limited due to COVID-19 precautions. To learn more about volunteering, please visit https://cedarcrest4kids.org/volunteer.
