Services for Families

When a child is diagnosed with an illness, our first goal is to find the best possible care for that child. But we also understand, that it isn't only the child who needs support, care, guidance, and assistance. Family Services at Children's Hospital works to meet the needs of the entire family during their experience with us. Social Workers, Child Life Specialists, and Pastoral Care Chaplains - all members of the Family Services team - are available to help you navigate the process, understand the decisions that need to be made and, at times, offer a shoulder to lean on during trying times.
