To Make a Positive and Supportive Difference
We believe that, in ideal circumstances, every child should be healthy, live at home, and be surrounded by a loving family. However, for some HIV positive children, this is not possible. Some children are chronically ill and have care needs that are too complex to be provided adequately in a home setting. For children who need the services of Incarnation Children’s Center, we acknowledge that we are not a replacement for a child’s home or family.
However, we pledge the following:
To provide a nurturing, home-like setting that provides first-rate care, filled with love and compassion, designed to give each child a longer and better quality of life.
To be ever- mindful of the effects, on child and family alike, that admission to ICC may cause and to do all we can to ensure a positive experience.
To make every effort to improve each child’s health to allow the earliest possible discharge back to the community.
We see a child’s placement at ICC as a multifaceted treatment opportunity. In general, a child is referred for medical treatment, yet there may also be educational, psychological and social needs that must be addressed.
Our team’s approach is interdisciplinary, family oriented and community focused. Our team works not just with the child, but also with the family and the various clinics and agencies supporting the family.
