JLCC C.A.R.E.S. (Confidence, Awareness, Respect, Esteem & Strength)

        This project supports the holistic approach that the Center for Pediatric Eating

Disorders at Children’s Medical Center Plano utilizes in its treatment plan. JLCC Volunteers facilitate arts & crafts sessions three times a month for the patients. Children and adolescents with eating disorders are often socially isolated, and the purpose of this program is to offer a safe and nurturing environment for these patients to learn or reestablish their social skills.

 

Impact: 100s of patients receiving treatment at the Center for Pediatric Eating Disorders
