Champions for Families… Behind the scenes in the Blue Jackets Foundation Family Resource Center
This video takes you behind the scenes in the Blue Jackets Foundation Family Resource Center to meet Julie Sholl. Julie, who has triplets in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit, is exactly why we created this place of respite and comfort.
About the Family Resource Center: When a child is hospitalized it affects the whole family but parents rarely take time for themselves during this stressful time. That’s why, with the support of the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, we created the Family Resource Center – a special destination in the hospital where parents can take a moment for themselves while still being minutes from their child’s bedside. Parents can relax on comfortable couches, surf the web or enjoy many of the complimentary services including massages, haircuts provided by Great Clips, laundry services, a room for nursing mothers, workout facilities, education classes, and rest areas for entertainment or meals.
The Family Resource Center is celebrating its 5th Anniversary of helping families. If you’ve ever used the Center please post a comment. We’d love to hear which services were most beneficial and how we can enhance future resources for families.
