The Crippled Children’s Foundation, located in Birmingham, Ala., has awarded Children’s Harbor a $20,000 grant in support of the charitable organization’s Pediatric Cardiac Counseling Program.
The counseling program is now in its sixth year and is one of many vital services provided to seriously ill children and their families through the Children’s Harbor Family Center within the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children in Birmingham.
“We share a common mission with the Crippled Children’s Foundation in the desire to reduce the stress and strain families experience as they seek care for their seriously ill children,” said Myrle Grate, CEO of Children’s Harbor. “CCF has been a partner of Children’s Harbor since 2001, and we are grateful for this generous gift as well as their long-term partnership.”
Founded in 1929, the Crippled Children’s Foundation provides direct financial support to charities providing vital medical services to children, which services would not otherwise be available.
Children’s Harbor offers patients and their families two unique environments to strengthen family bonds and find balance and support during and after hospitalization. The services offered at campuses on Lake Martin and in Birmingham are provided to families at no cost, thanks to many generous donors and volunteers.
