Our project

Funds from the 2024 Ball will be used to support the art and music therapy program at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU so that we can offer services to more children than ever before and enhance the experience for our families.

 

​Art and music therapy provide children with a creative outlet to express emotions, cope with pain and stress, have fun in the hospital environment, while also allowing for autonomy and choice where children often feel like their voice may not be heard. CHoR currently provides these services to patients in the inpatient and outpatient settings, but they rely on therapists who serve both adult and pediatric patient populations. ​

 

The need for art and music therapists who are dedicated to kids and work exclusively at CHoR locations has been highlighted by the opening of the Children’s Tower, which has both increased patient volumes and provided additional spaces in the environment where children could receive these meaningful therapies.

“Last year, CHoR saw more than 8,000 admissions of children from across the country and abroad. The new CHoR art and music therapists will provide a large and diverse population of children with a productive outlet for stress relief and emotional expression. They'll be able to provide support to children, communicate with their families and work with the rest of the care team to integrate art and music therapy into the treatment plan, creating a holistic approach to healthcare."
