Do You Have a Special Needs Child?
If your child has special needs, perhaps Pope's Kids Place can help. We provide services and assistance in Southwest Washington to help an overlooked segment of our population: medically fragile children.
It's our goal to identify health concerns, manage health-care issues, and act as liaison with specialists and other health-care providers for these medically fragile children and their families. We offer four distinct services to the citizens of Lewis County:
- Vivian's House Respite Services
- Dental Program
- Outreach Programs
- Pediatric Medical Clinic
- Preschool Ages 3-5
We serve all children, with a primary focus on those who are medically fragile, disabled, and have special health care needs. Our committed, energetic staff has one main goal: to preserve and maintain the integrity of families challenged by the care of special needs children.
Here's an excerpt from one of our patient's parents, people who were able to take their first overnight trip as a couple in over seven years because of the respite center:
We adopted our youngest daughter in 1999. It is difficult to find someone for even a few hours who has the skills to take care of her. Because of this, we have not been able to take an overnight trip as a couple for over 7 years. Last month, because of Pope's Kids Place we had the pleasure of two whole evenings away by ourselves to reconnect, recharge, and relax. We just wanted to let you know what a difference your respite facility, your dedicated staff, and United Way have made to our family.
We're a non-profit 501(c)(3)organization here to serve you. And while you're here, take a moment to browse through our list of resources that support the needs of children with disabilities and their families.
