Meet Our Waiting Children
Rooms With A Heart, Inc., works closely with local hospitals to identify children who might benefit from our organization. Once we receive the referral, we meet with the child and parents to assess the room need and desire. During this meeting we look at ways to enhance their room, such as replacing carpet with hard surface floors to help reduce allergens or ease in moving medical equipment. We take the child's current medical needs into consideration, along with what each child sees as the vision for their customized space.
Materials, products and furnishings are carefully selected and approved; volunteers from either a room sponsor or the local community are notified and scheduled. On the day of the makeover, the committee members and volunteers meet at the child’s home about 8am and the work begins. The family will leave the home enjoying a special day that we have planned for the child depending on their current medical condition. During the reveal day our volunteers work together as a team to ensure every detail is completed. Typically around 3-4pm we gather the family and volunteers to celebrate in the childs room reveal.
